Playing devil's advocate:

The issue is not so much the keystrokes saved as the improvement in reading and understanding what was intended.  If you are happy with starting at 1 the idiom is easy to both write, read, and understand; but if you want some other starting number you have to uglify your code with parenthesis, .methods, and add an extra iterator which you have to manually re-sync if you later add another name...

I think that is the real issue -- not keystrokes.
