> We should disable strict type sanity checking in HandlePluginResult for bro functions that return TYPE_ANY.
> This is needed to wrap functions such as Queue::get() where the function is declared with a return type of 'any', but often returns items that are of a specific type (e.g. record).  Although a returned record value is valid, the type sanity check in Func::HandlePluginResult fails because TYPE_RECORD != TYPE_ANY.
