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. --Ryan 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 able to use the appropriate system for each instance the makes clear sense to me.
