Perl, Python, Fortran amongst others and they ALL use zero based indexing.
So what? REBOL is different ;)
IMO REBOL is designed with people in mind. When You say "all other

2. Length and last index is the same number - no need for another function.
3. Publicity - "Ah, THAT is the language which use ONE based indexing".
4. You can always write Your own dialect.
