class "ANY" has no purpose in the real world, not even for debugging.  if
you see it in a query, you can assume malicious intent.  if you hear it in
a query, you can safely ignore that query, or at best, map it to class "IN".

        er... i guess that is true, although the DNS does work for 
        things other than IP based networks...  dispite our respective
        best efforts to cripple it.
