I'd like to prefix all these solutions with "Here's how to do it, but
don't actually do it you crazy fool". It's on a par with redefining pi,
or redefining '+'. And then redefining '<-'.
These techniques have their proper place, and that would be in the
currently non-existent obfuscated R contest.
No, the R-ish (iRish?) way is to index vectors from 1. That's what the
R gods intended!
