If the "any" type now boils up to the clients, we need to fix/change the
APIs too, to understand this type and in some cases do something
sensical with it.  JDBC will barf on it currently, IIRC.

Would it be possible to use an existing type for NULL when it has no
type at the stage where it is sent back to the client (like
exportResult)?
