Can Xpath 1.0 print "position()" results?

Title: Can Xpath 1.0 print "position()" results?

Not that I really need to know this, but someone asked this on StackOverflow, and now I gotta know. :)

Is it possible for a plain Xpath 1.0 query to return a "position()" value?  I know it can be used in predicates, but that simply results in the found element at that position.  I know I can return the "text()" result from an Xpath, but is it not possible to return the "position()" value?  If that's the case, I imagine there are other functions that might seem logical to get values from that won't work like this.
