Hi Peter,

The pipebackend is capable of answering any question type. However, any
question type I send in the request, I still see NS being passed on to the
backend. This was not the behavior in R2.99.2. In R2.99.2, the qtype passed
to the backend used to be ANY whereas from R3.0 onwards, I see the qtype
being passed is NS. Is there any change in behavior in that area from
R2.99.2 to R3.X?
