Reassigned to requirements.

Unicode arrow 21A6. Very used in French spoken maths (so probably in other latin
and Russian languaged maths), it should be included in Catalog.
If you have a Unicode font including this arrow, you can include this character
in the catalog yourself, though it's not very intuitive :
+ Open a formula.
+ Tools: catalog: edit.
+ In "Symbol" field, type "becomes" (for instance).
+ In "Symbol set", choose "Special".
+ In font choose your Unicode font (for instance "Lucida sans").
+ In "Subset", choose "Arrows".
+ In the big characters table, select ↦ by clicking on it: it's displayed in big
in the bottom right square.
+ Click "Add", then "OK".
+ In the "Symbols" dialog, you now have ↦, you can double-click on it to insert
it. Alternatively, you can type "%becomes" in the formula editor.

dejavu includes maby arrow symbols and is bundled with OO.o

If one arrow symbol is missing in dejavu you can submit a patch to the dejavu
project to support it in the next version (
