When you sort a list with list.sort() or sorted(list), and set the
reverse parameter to None, then you get the following misleading error
message:

    TypeError: an integer is required

I would expect a more proper error message for the reverse parameter,
such as "reverse must be a boolean", and maybe reverse=None also
accepted as default value, i.e. False.
