That's an excellent question. I hadn't done anything about it. The
parsers just silently turn a too big integer into an approximation.
For Waterken server <=> Waterken server communication, this isn't an
issue, since the BigInteger type is used, but it's clearly an issue
for Waterken server <=> web browser communication. I suspect it would
be safest to drop to the lowest common denominator and refuse to
for BigIntegers. Comments?
