Imagine that the dish moved but the counter didn't work, or simply
there's some slack accumulated, so the actual position and the
registered position differ.
Without this method you should store each of the already stored
position, with a Recalc method, positioning to one know good satellite
would be enough, since the relatives positions would still be good.
Actually, the description is wrong, as the effect would be "You,
positioner, now are at this position", so it would be something like

"Set as your current position the position specified by Number"

(or longitude if you prefer)

So maybe it should be better called "SetCurrentPosition"
