Compatibility for Old Clients With Binary JSON

The database supports JSON in a binary format. In some situations, clients will work directly with the binary format. However, this requires that the client be a recent enough version to understand the format. The database will now identify older clients and automatically transform JSON data from binary to text (serialized) format before transmitting it to them, and convert back from text to binary format as required.

Support for older clients without being forced to upgrade.
