This reverts commit a4ce468. There is both a Web::Hippie encoding hiccup as _well_ as Github sending utf-8 encoded data, which we were already decoding into characters.

The failing decode_json came from Web::Hippie, not the github endpoint. This reverts commit 018e5b5, but leaves in place the additional debugging.
