I don't share your concern about users confusing "<" with the shell's
redirection operator, but why is ">" before a node name any different?

I like the balanced ^UP^ notation; why not use it everywhere?

Here's what I have in mind:

<FROM< ^UP^ >TO>

Also, is it feasible to left-justify FROM, right-justify TO, and center UP?
