Hmm. The units are an issues as to be consistent with the existing ABI position
should be in meters. Perhaps the trick is to do similar to we have done for
relative humidity and call this in_positionrelative_x_raw etc.

That leaves position open for absolute position devices (who knows what)
in the future.
