[REBOL] Re: ZERO-INDEX-PATCH_alpha-001

I might actually use them on occasion if they were packaged differently. I would prefer
one of the below formats:
* Packaged in an object like zip/pick, zip/index?, zip/skip, etc. --My favorite.
* Prefixed names like zip-pick, zip-index?, zip-skip, etc.
* Patch the system words, but just add a /zero indexing option. This way nothing breaks
and you can still load in unsuspecting programs without problems.
PS: To say strictly that we should only use 0 based indexing would leave many problems
suited for 1 based indexing having to do adjustments. And so it is vice versa. Being
use the appropriate system for each instance the makes clear sense to me.
