Chromosomes hard-wired in GenomicPosition

Description

In the GenomicPosition? chromosomes are currently hard-wired i.e. X=23, Y=24, and M=25. This is not always the natural choice - well natural and natural but e.g. different aligners may have different conventions. Not to mention that the current implementation is very human-centric.

One workaround is to avoid string constructors because then you'd avoid the core of the problem which is omic::chr2int(const std::string).
