JavaScript represents all numbers in a double like manner thus it
treats 64 bit integers in an unsafe manner, to workaroud this problem
provide an alternative strin representation in JSON serialization
format so JavaScript clients can access the correct value someway.
As JSON have no probles with 64 bits integers keep supporting the integer
representation too.
