This actually clears up something that's been bothering me for some
time.  I've never really like syntax of types for functions with
multiple arguments.  Using the same token, "->", to separate both
arguments and the result seems very poor, because when reading a type
you don't know if the value after that token is another argument or
the final result without going further ahead.  However, knowing that a
function takes exactly one argument makes the syntax seem much more
expressive for me.
