Broken slice() interface

Description

Slice takes a 0-indexed start position and a 1-indexed end position, "cleverly" described as 'the 0-indexed position where elements stop being selected'. Or, in other words, a 1-indexed ending position.

What's really awful is that the traditional slice interface is offset,length -- not offset_start,offset_end.

Most of jQuery's quirks make sense in the context of JavaScript, but this is just flat-out incorrect design.

Arguments for jQuery's slice are in perfect Harmony with ECMA-262... we even pass them directly to the native method.
