      Users of the R bindings should be able to opt-in to collect int64s as integers since int64s and ints are not interchangeable, currently, in R.

      Background: In sparklyr, we decided to collect int64s as ints originally since Spark defaults many types to int64s. Therefore, to maintain compatibility in sparklyr, we need to default to collect int64s as ints and then allow users to opt-in to collect as proper int64 types.
