Sort of like "dig 1024.pathtest.isc.org txt +bufsize=4096" ? :)
Replace 1024 with anything you like from 1 through 4095.
It does not return a specially crafted packet, but it guarantees a TXT
record that contains exactly that many bytes in it. It's garbled data
(literally, from /dev/urandom when I made this) so it should not
compress much. I'm old enough to remember compression making some
things sneak through pipes where the uncompressed size would not, and
covered my bases.
