Perhaps you should move to COBOL :-), where the first element of an array is addressed as...... 1.

    This is a bit late, but here are my $0.02.

    I like arrays in pascal with bounds from -n to +n: var a: array [-10..10] of integer; It is very natural, simple and with run-time bounds checking also very safe. With arrays like pascal's much of current buffer overrun exploits would (probably) not exist!
