Mangling JSON numbers


If we have a long (64-bit integer) that we serialize into JSON, we might be in trouble if JavaScript consumes that JSON. JavaScript has the equivalent of double (64-bit floating point) for its numbers, and double cannot represent the same set of numbers as long. If we store 2 53 + 1 in a long and that number is meant to be precise, then we should avoid encoding it as a JSON number and sending it to a JavaScript client. The output of x.toString() in JavaScript is suspicious.
