Recommend cleaning up quoting of non-string values in API docs

The groups.io API doesn't appear to use quotes around numbers and booleans.  At the very beginning of https://groups.io/api (under Pagination) it shows a correct response, however all subsequent sections (objects and the various calls that use them) show these numbers incorrectly quoted, not how they actually are presented by the API.

This is an important distinction for implementation in some languages (like using Go's json.Unmarshal).  Fixing will help any future people from running into extra work discovering the API doesn't match the docs.

Thanks!

Good catch. It should be fixed now.

Thanks,
