Honestly this is an example of a module that would have been better off outside the stdlib.

Could you share some motivation references that could help explain why
this next_network method will be helpful? Is this common enough to
warrant a method in the stdlib IP-Address module?
If there is prior-art in other external libraries or libraries of
other languages, that will be helpful to know and review too.

I had looked at this a month ago when you pinged for review, but I
could not immediately determine the benefit of having this method in
stdlib, irrespective of implementation correctness or API Signature.
I also lack extensive experience with ipv6.
