Well, neither me (I haven't used much of the guts api there).

One drawback would be that it would require both conversion to a string format and to a perl reference, performing unnecessary actions during every time arrays are passed to a pl/perl function. If there is a strong dislike of the proposed 'compatibility' GUC option - I think I can change the existing patch to incorporate array string representation into the reference-holding SV quite easily.
