Currently the $position property inside the repeat directive is either 'first', 'middle' or 'last'.
But if the list only has one item, the $position is set to 'first' by angular, even though it is actually both the first and last item.

Since this subtlety can't (reasonably) be represented by a single variable, something else is required. One way to solve it would be to have three boolean properties, $first, $middle and $last instead.

@maxmart @IgorMinar maxmart + IgorMinar fix(ngRepeat): expose $first, $middle and $last instead of $position
$position marker doesn't work well in cases when we have just one item
in the list because then the item is both the first and last. To solve
this properly we need to expose individual $first and $middle and $last

BREAKING CHANGE: $position is not exposed in repeater scopes any more

To update, search for $position and replace it with one of $first,
$middle or $last.

Closes #912
