Permit grouping columns to be used in `order by`/`having` #521

Seq takes the slightly unorthodox approach of creating implicit result columns for SQL groupings. This isn't respected all the way through the query engine yet, so attempting to write a query like:

select count(*) from stream
group by StatusCode, RequestPath
order by StatusCode desc
having StatusCode > 399

Results in the error:

The `order by` clause can only refer to projected column aliases.

This is an issue for both order by and having. If the grouping is a simple expression, as in the example above, this should be reasonably easy to accept and will increase the number of queries that can be expressed in Seq's SQL dialect.
