   Yes!  In fact, 1-based indexing is one of the ( several ) reasons
   that I like Lua.  I detest either using, or teaching, the unnatural
   "0 to length-1" pattern of many other "high-level"(?) languages.

   But you're right -- "each to their own".  0 versus 1 debates are
   similar to emacs versus vi debates :-)
