Bart Lateur's response summarizes well what I've heard so far
from responses both to the list and privately:

(1) Yes,  ~  *is* somewhat used in its current role as the bitwise
    negation (complement) operator.

(2) No, that doesn't appear to overlap my proposal for its use
    as a successor to  ->  as now used.

Another cheer for the principle of least disturbance from the
Laziness SIG...
