Now, I am a bit puzzled. For months you have convinced me that pnotes() 
behaves the way it is designed to. Now that I have given up you out of the 
sudden switch hats. Is my English so bad to be not understandable?

Anyway, I'd like to provide these tests if we agree on what the "right" 
interface is. Should

a)  $r->pnotes(key=>value) behave like $r->pnotes->{key}=value or

b)  $r->pnotes->{key}=value behave like $r->pnotes(key=>value)

I would vote for a). That means $r->pnotes(key=>value) is to be changed to 
behave like an ordinary Perl hash.
