While the name ":from-end" certainly suggests the behavior you and I'd
expect, the spec reads "If from-end is true, then the result is the
rightmost element that satisfies the test." and do seems to license
that behavior. The portablity gods may reward you if you suppress
your very natural expectations. SBCL exhibits the same behavior.
