i dunno about others, but generally i only use range() if i need dynamic
or negative stepping in a number list; when dealing with a static
numbering list it seems more readable to just use a loop with a counter.

plus it's a bit less backwards-compatible with python 2; the start,
stop, and step parameters weren't introduced until 3.3. a loop with a
counter works on both. :)
