The zip thing certainly seems nice. But I can never get my head around
zip quick enough to not be confused by it. So my initial idea would
have been a function:

def reverse_indices(lst, x, y):
    return lst[y][x]

(or, possibly, a subclass of list with this as an additional method.)

Granted, the invocation is different from what you want, but I don't
know enough about your problem to judge whether this is an issue.
