Yeah, I thought a little further about it during my night's sleep as
well. I checked the JSON RFC, and it expresses no Number model; just
the representation. The Number model under which 1.0 === 1 is
JavaScript's, not JSON's. Therefore, it is impossible to conclude
equivalence for any two Numbers in JSON notation, and CouchDB should
roundtrip numbers as close to the original representation as possible.
