I had some code that set qdcount, ancount, nscount and arcount in the
header of a crafted Net::DNS message. Well, I was setting them and I
assume it worked, but I hadn't tested it in awhile. I recently
discovered that Net::DNS behavior changed between 0.68 and 0.69 that
permits you to only now read these values.
This isn't a big deal, but being able to set them, as I recall I was
able to do anyway, was useful for seeing how various implementations
would react. If it's not a big deal to bring back that functionality, it
might come in handy.
