Hello,
Thank you for your review. I have fixed most of your comments, except
for the 5-th part, about data::dumper - I just couldn't understand
your point, but I've added more tests with more complex objects if this

Please, take a look at new patch. You can find it in attachments to
this message (it is called "0001-jsonb_plperl-extension-v2.patch")
