Actually, you can with SOM with clever use of the sort_key attribute within
a subspace. Create a new subspace with a larger than normal sort key. Within
that space create a single symbol "_end".
Though I'd worry about precisely *why* someone wants the _end symbol; whatever
they're trying to do there's probably a better way.
