I prefer option 5 and leaving the module as-is.  The bisect module api is slice oriented and, in general, people have a hard time reasoning about slices for reverse ordered sequences.  Even the forward ordered API is a bit awkward so that we had to document how to implement find_lt(), find_le(), etc. because it wasn't obvious how to do so.  Also, it doesn't seem to come-up much (the bisect module is over two decades old).  So, I don't think the API and the internals should be gummed up for this.

My vote is -1 because it would cause more problems than it would solve.  Let's cater to the common use cases rather than every possible variant.
