[Newbies] Left-arrow for assignment

I've experimented with Squeak a bit, and have also seen the debate on
the assignment symbols and how to handle the left-arrow, ':=', and
underscore at http://wiki.squeak.org/squeak/5751. However, I want to use
the left-arrow in my code. Is this possible? It seems like translation
from ':=' to left-arrow and vice-versa should be straightforward
(indeed, a sed script could do it).

This may be a FAQ, but I didn't see it on the FAQ list at the Squeak
wiki. Thanks.
