@romainfrancois can you please also implement this for the hybrid handler?

With this change, it should be possible to have both first and last be special cases of nth. I think that should simplify the code quite a bit. Also, is it possible to pull the related code out of dplyr.cpp and put it in nth.cpp? I think that would make it easier for me to see what's going on (and easier to verify that we've covered all the corner cases)
