LightWave Client: integer with scale values are serialized in exponential notation


When a type defined as integer with scale is serialized, and the serialized value is less than  0.10, the value is serialized in exponential notation. For example, a field defined as:

  "name" : "field",
  "type" : "int",
  "scale" : 2

with value 1 is serialized as:

  "field" : 1.E-02

instead of:

  "field" : 0.01

While the exponential values are correct, they may not be accepted by some web services. Note that this only occurs when the resulting serialized value is less than 0.10.
