I don't think that the arrows add much. I read it as "foo.c is going to M".
Or possibly assignment: "M takes foo.c".

My second concern (although slight) is the use of shell metacharacters. I
dunno in what cases it will create a hassle, but certain types of parsing
might get tripped up with needing to escape the '<-' pattern.

Personally, I'm not bothered by the full words. Why the need to be terse?
We're down to a single line, which is the important part. No need to be
horizontally-terse :-) Single letters vs words are the same complexity to
parse, yet the word is easier for the human.

Cheers,
