Upon further reflection, I think these cases should raise a TypeError because the meaning is ambiguous:

    randrange(1000, step=10) # Could only mean start=0 stop=1000 step=10

but that conflicts with:

    randrange(1000, None, 100)  # Has no reasonable interpretation

For comparison, this currently raises a TypeError because None isn't a sensible argument for stop:

    range(1000, None, 100)
