Do you really have a use case for this?
RFC 1924 is an April 1st one, and I've never seen anybody actually use
the base85 representation of IPv6 addresses anywhere.
(In case somebody wants a quick try, ipv6calc supports it:
% ipv6calc -O base85 2607:f8f0:610:4000:214:38ff:feee:b65a
No input type specified, try autodetection...found type: ipv6addr
