The sentinel form of next() is nice when there's a natural sentinel value, but needing to *create* a sentinel is generally a sign that the out-of-band exception is a better fit.

The function could likely do with some refactoring (e.g. breaking out some helper functions to make the logic easier to follow), but shifting from idiomatic code to non-idiomatic code isn't a good way of tackling that.
