Futon implicit typing when adding/editing fields is flawed
----------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-667
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-667
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Futon
    Affects Versions: 0.11
         Environment: Linux (Ubuntu 9.10), Chromium/Firefox
            Reporter: Matt Goodall


Futon's doc editor tries to guess the type of values, often getting it wrong.

I discovered it when a JSON object containing items was turned into a string, breaking my
application. e.g. {...} was quoted giving "{...}". Unfortunately, I cannot reproduce this.

However, other (admittedly contrived) examples are:

1. Add a field and enter the string "1" as the value. Edit the value and try to enter the
number 1 instead. The value is implicitly converted back to a string.

2. Add a field and enter the string "[]" as the value. Try to change the value to the string
"[100]". The value is implicitly converted to the list [100].

Personally, I think the implicit type conversion is a really bad idea and should be removed.
It might be nice to special-case the doc id but even that doesn't really seem worth the effort.
