The only things I don't like about arrow form are 1) two characters, and 2) it looks like other math symbols.

I like the colon form, but some text editors make it almost invisible. If the font makes it bold enough, it can be easier to recognize than many of the others.

I originally like the pipe form, as it's also pretty obvious. However, since this is a lisp, you can always rewrite it to suite your individual tastes ;) How about writing a "config" file for arc, and various conversion tools, that allow us to all write in our own style, and easily convert between them? Then we wouldn't have to argue over which separator to use.

Good call, but this doesn't address the problem of having to explicitly list parameters, which can be the majority of the code in a small function.
