There was no conclusion (will there ever be?).
Currently indexing is 1-based, and there's an upcoming article about
tuples in CUJ, which describes them as 1-base indexed.
However, this doesn't prevent taking the other alternative,
if that is considered better.
So those who feel strongly about this issue, speak up now and we'll
change to 0-based. Otherwise, I'd suggest leaving it as it is.
