/**
* $.unserialize
*
* Takes a string in format "param1=value1&param2=value2" and returns an object { param1: 'value1', param2: 'value2' }. If the "param1" ends with "[]" the param is treated as an array.
*
* Example:
*
* Input: param1=value1&param2=value2
* Return: { param1 : value1, param2: value2 }
*
* Input: param1[]=value1&param1[]=value2
* Return: { param1: [ value1, value2 ] }
*
* @todo Support params like "param1[name]=value1" (should return { param1: { name: value1 } })
* Usage example: console.log($.unserialize("one="+escape("& = ?")+"&two="+escape("value1")+"&two="+escape("value2")+"&three[]="+escape("value1")+"&three[]="+escape("value2")));
