What does this PR do?

This PR fixes a number representation issue under older Python versions.

What issues does this PR fix or reference?


Previous Behavior

Numbers were represented with a maximum of 12 digits of precision.

New Behavior

Numbers are represented with the maximum precision.
For the DOUBLE format that is used, that is about 16 digits.

In python issue it was decided that the artificial limitation to 12 digits should be removed. Therefore starting with Python3.2 it behaves differently (better).

Tests written?

Test with salt-call test.echo 1234567890.123456
When using python27 the result previously was 1234567890.12
When using python34 the result previously was 1234567890.123456
Now the result is 1234567890.123456 in all cases.

@cachedout build fails for py3-centos-7. it seems unrelated to my change. previous build was ok and only a small comment changed. the job complains about a salt-master being unreachable in 2 cases. what is the proper way forward?

…tually: Salt CLI is using only 12 digits for precision)

use repr() to get the full precision also for older python versions
as until about python32 it was limited to 12 digits only by default
