Allowing END to be NIL across the board is a good idea. However,
the current PARSE-INTEGER doesn't say NIL is supposed to mean anything,
so I think this would be a change in the functionality. So another
cleanup item would be appropriate. You might want to generalize and
talk about the uses of all the normal "sequence" keyword arguments.
For example, I don't think CLtL says that the predicates and :key's
may get called any number of times in any order, except when describing
SEARCH. I think that should be stated for all the sequence functions.
