When NSJSONSerialization encodes an integer, it writes it out in
floating-point format with five decimals, i.e. "123.00000" instead of "123".
Not a big deal, but it's unattractive and makes the JSON output longer than it
needs to be.

The writeObject() function, at NSJSONSerialization.m:832, outputs any NSNumber
by calling:
          [output appendFormat: @"%f", [obj doubleValue]];
The default formatting of "%f" is five decimal places, apparently.
Changing the format string to "%g" suppresses unnecessary decimals and causes
integers to be written as integers. (See patch below.)
