Okay, here's what we have so far:
iterindexed()-- five syllables is a mouthfull index() -- nice verb but could be confused the .index() method indexed() -- widely liked however adjectives should be avoided count() -- direct and explicit but often used in other contexts itercount() -- direct, explicit and hated by more than one person enumerate() -- a contender but doesn't mention iteration or indices iteritems() -- already used by dictionaries for key:value pairs
Since Guido is sticking to bool() for his current PEP, I guess that leaves truth() open for this <wink>.
iotazip() is a natural for those with both APL and Haskell backgrounds, and sounds way cool if you're burned out.
ordinalize() is an even clumsier way to say enumerate().
poll() would confuse everyone almost equally.
countoff() brings to mind a common isomorphic procedure in American schools ("One!", "Two!", "Three!", ...). I kinda like it, although zerobasedcountoff() may be more appropriate here <wink>.
rollcall() is cute.
paginate() is descriptive for one specific application.
If indexed() is disliked just because it's an adjective, Google finds only one hit for indicify(). indexify() gets 103.
I'm amazed that Marc-Andre's irange() isn't already in the list (it's part of his mxTools Python extension).
As long as you remain backwards compatible with irange() I don't have objections ;-) (same for the other extra builtins in mxTools)
