to_json does not escape unicode characters

Reported by Ryan Sonnek | October 7th, 2009 @ 10:27 PM

The current JSON encode method does not properly escape non-ascii characters.

'bad characters'.concat(16).to_json => ""bad characters\020""

Should be:
=> ""bad characters\u0010""

The ruby json gem works correctly and an acceptable work around would be to have the ActiveSupport::JSON.encode method delegate to the ActiveSupport::JSON.backend (which can be configured to use the ruby json gem)

tested in rails 2.3.4
