Yes, you're right. "container" is too general I think, so I renamed

Well, I missed that, since I used already implemented function "setPath",
this function implies that "all path elements before the last must already
exist", so in this case:

select jsonb_set('{"a": {}}', '{a, a1, 1}', '42');

nothing will be changed. I agree, we can implement this as discussed, but
we need
to do it inside "setPath", so it will be like "globally".

The point is that "transformArrayType" still contains some array-specific
although it doesn't affect to any other type. So I think it's not completely
