      Description

      Some fields are returned as strings in db_info and other places to protect against numeric overflow;

      {"db_name":"db","doc_count":0,"doc_del_count":0,"update_seq":0,"purge_seq":0,"compact_running":false,"disk_size":79,"instance_start_time":"1290088043619158","disk_format_version":5,"committed_update_seq":0}

      here, instance_start_time is protected but, more critically, update_seq is not.

      If update_seq were to be wrapped due to precision issues, what breaks?
