The ordinal functions are first, second, third, ..., last, etc.

There are two changes of interest:

 Change1Ordinals are now of type native! not action!
 ReasonPolymorphic application of these functions across all series datatypes improves the implementation.

And:

 Change2Ordinals no longer throw an error on a past-end condition.
 ReasonBehavior is now similar to pick, returning none when past end. Experience has shown that making the ordinals throw errors when past-end was not convenient for the most common coding practices.
