Encode JSON in UTF-8 instead of BINARY

Reported by Akira Matsuda | June 29th, 2009 @ 08:52 AM | in 2.x

Since default internal and external encodings are set to UTF-8 now (IMO, this is quite a good decision), JSON encoding doesn't have to be BINARY here.

And, String#encode! is enough for transcoding here because every JSON text is expected to be encoded in Unicode according to the JSON RFC.

Attached a patch.
