PATCH JSON Regression - CouchDB crash on rendering very large integers
----------------------------------------------------------------------

                 Key: COUCHDB-118
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/COUCHDB-118
             Project: CouchDB
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Database Core
    Affects Versions: 0.9
            Reporter: Chris Anderson


Creating documents with gigantic integers works fine, but rendering them causes a crash as
mochijson2 tries to call float(I) and Erlang is not capable of handling it. There's nothing
in the JSON spec[1] to suggest that huge integers must be rendered as float, so I removed
that guard from mochijson2. This fixes the bug.

I included no Futon tests because the numbers we're dealing with are too large to be managed
by Javascript. However, I will attach a Ruby test that shows the bug. It is worth noting that
the Ruby test passes on old (cjson) versions of CouchDB.
