Keep it with a small change.  I use it quite often, because my mind suggests
the link text before it figures out what the link target should be be.
Because -> is awkward to type frequently, I modified the markup rule to
accept [[Link Text > http://www.example.com ]]. Much simpler to type that
way. (It still accepts -> as well.)

I'm not giving it up; that one's in my fingers.
