I don't very much like this idea ... if we have a set of siblings
(say, elements), and I am at a particular context node, then count(. |
preceding-sibling::*) will give what sibling-position() you are asking
to do.

I also do not like this idea very much ... I think the current tree
navigation mechanisms in XPath are sufficient (axes etc.).
