I've incorporated this variable into the tutorial.

Oh, now I see, thank you.

Shame on me :) Fixed.

Hm...I'm afraid I don't get this. `resnull` is never assigned inside
`jsonb_subscript_fetch` or `jsonb_subscript_assign`, instead it's coming
from `ExecInterpExp` as `isnull` if I remember correctly. Are we talking
the same thing?

In this version of the patch I also improved NULL handling, you can see it
the tests.
