'before-or-none is a symbol. '(before-or-none) is a list of symbols. The
help-desk says that it's looking for a
"symbol in '(before-or-none before after after-or-none)". This is slightly
confusing but it's saying it needs on of those symbols.

(send ED find-snip 1 'before-or-none #f) ; is what you want
