I think I will try and invite Robert Bristow Johnson into
this discussion.  He's one of the most respected voices in
DSP on the net and the most ardent critic of Matlab's 1
origin "problem" in DSP.  Interesting him in a project to
create a Matlike DSP package for R is one of the main
reasons I am inquiring about 0-origin.

Again, the more I get into this language (I just wish I
could suspend everything else I'm doing for the nonce) the
more I simply love it.
