The more I think of it the more I am convinced that this is not good. If you 
think $r->pnotes behaves the way it is designed to then let it be so. There 
is indeed an interface that already does what the new one is intended to do, 
that is $r->pnotes->{key}=value. Hence, no need for an additional interface.

The behavior must be well documented and the difference thoroughly explained. 
That's all. I'll see if I can come up with a better patch.

When I got bitten by it in the first place it took me about a day to figure 
out what had happend but hey it was not documented then at all.
