1..nil can be created by Marshal.load as mame san stated on Twitter (https://twitter.com/mametter/status/796372577031622656):

```
lexington:ruby$ ./ruby -ve 'p 1..nil'
ruby 2.4.0dev (2016-11-10 trunk 56682) [x86_64-linux]
-e:1:in `<main>': bad value for range (ArgumentError)
lexington:ruby$ ./ruby -ve 'p Marshal.load("\x04\bo:\nRange\b:\texclF:\nbegini\x06:\bend0")'
ruby 2.4.0dev (2016-11-10 trunk 56682) [x86_64-linux]
1..nil
```

Is it intentional behavior (e.g., for compatibility with old versions of Ruby, where 1..nil is allowed)?
