Personally, I don't find it "more readable"; on the one hand, it's one character shorter; on the other, it stands out less from everything else.
My personal bias against it is that I'm too used to reading \ as "escape", so every time I see examples my first reaction is "what does an escaped parenthesis mean?" I'm sure I'd get used to it, but I prefer "fn" because it more immediately makes me think "function".

This syntax does make sense to me, although only as I've seen it
before in Haskell, which does something similar:
I think that people will get used to whatever becomes common.
