>I can state the compelling reason for this one -- it's way too confusing when $1, $2, $3, etc. correspond to $/, $/, $/, etc. >In many discussions of capturing semantics earlier in the year, nearly everyone using $1, $2, $3 in examples, documentation, and discussion was having trouble with off-by-one errors. This includes the language designers, and even those who were advocating staying with $1, $2, $3. Once we switched to using $0, $1, $2, etc., nearly all of the confusion and mistakes disappeared. Okay, this I buy. There's a cost to it, but it's worth it.
