Y'all are missing my point.  Let's drop the "Unix" qualification for a
moment.  My point is that only geeks count starting at 0.  The rest of
the "non-geek" (i.e. non-computer programmers/operators) count
_everything_ starting with 1.  i.e. the first egg of a dozen is egg #1
and the last is #12, not #0 and #11.

But let's not flog a dead horse.  If y'all want to count (thing that
users will want to count, for example, screens) starting with 0, I
ain't gunna stop yas.
