Exactly. Sorry, I think you're missing http://arclanguage.org/item?id=16826. In brief, = is now equality and <- is now assignment. And since both are composed of operator chars, (def (a <- b) ..) is transparently read as (def (<- a b) ..), which now maps directly to the scheme-like declaration syntax, etc., etc.

Thanks Pauan for the clarifying comments!
