Programs are logical, and from that point of view the -> symbol is an 
excellent match with mathematical logic.  I'd like to see more support for 
logical symbols in the type systems of programming languages. The 
Curry-Howard correspondence matches function types with logical implication, 
and provides a source for many more symbols.
