I think C<< >> >> should work just fine.  You just have to make
sure that the final space is distinct from the first space.  In the
rare cases where you want to have something else before it, you can
say C<< foo Z<>>> >>, or use the tried and true &gt;.

But -> and => are much more frequently used than >>, so we should
optimize for them.
