--- Comment #10 from Nicolas Brisset <nicolas brisset eurocopter com>  2010-09-01 14:10:10 ---
OK,you're right. Sorry for the confusion.
The only question is: would a "normal user" type in "229" when he wants the
data from sample #230? While C has indexes starting at 0, humans tend to think
from 1.
I see two options:
1) we add a note on indexes starting at 0 in the tooltip of the Start field (as
that is not too invasive) and leave the rest as is
2) we change the code so that the user-visible UI has indexes starting from 1,
and  only developers see indexes starting at 0.

Ideally, I think 2) would be the nicer solution for end-users, but we are
pretty sure to break a couple of things and may have compatibility problems. In
the end, 1) is probably the better compromise.
I'll commit something that goes in this direction, if someone does not like it
or has a better idea, then just change it.
