(eval (count-words nil nil))
=> eval: Wrong type argument: integer-or-marker-p, nil

We were using a condition-case returning an error message in such cases.

See

Yes, seems fragile too.

Another approch would be to allow more args to `call-interactively',
this would allow one to use:

(apply 'call-interactively '(sexp arg1 arg2 arg...))

But not sure this would cover all use cases.
