When I write things like `Γ ⊢ e : τ₁ → τ₂` in my email, some (human) readers
are admittedly surprised (enough to say something about it in their
reply, typically "how do you do that?"), so it does "cross a line"
somehow (since those same readers aren't surprised when I use various
kinds of accented letters or an emoji), but I can't remember a single
time where it caused a problem.
