I'd suggest a few of the arrowheads from eg. the Selwyn font, in
particular chars 212, 213, 226 and 228. It might also be handy to be able
to end the line in a dot to use for certain labeling of diagrams. As a
further suggestion, maybe an arrow finishing in a vertical line for eg.

Sorry, being at work at the moment, I can't send drawings.

Just my 2p worth.
