With the RV convention change that I proposed on github (always point
before the first element that is out-of-order with respect to its
predecessor, rather than the first that is out-of-order with respect
to its successor), it would be exactly the same, so I think we may be
stuck with this name, even though I agree that it sounds like it
should return a bool.

If we were starting from scratch my first impulse would be
end_of_ordered_prefix(), but that too seems wordier than the ideal.
