Feature #11527

IPAddr#mask_addr isn't a method

Description

Right now there's no way to get the current value of an IP address's mask from an IPAddr instance. While there's an instance variable (@mask_addr), there's no attribute reader to get it's value, and relying on reading the instance variable isn't pretty nice for a stdlib (stable as it might be).

Is there any particular reason why this is not public, or would a patch/pull request adding the corresponding attr_reader be accepted?
