Support standard data types for the databases you support

Backend
On our radar
One of the challenges of building large scale apps is to have enough bandwidth for unique ids per entity so that we do not have to resort to GUIDs as primary keys (which sometimes make for slower indexes.)

Specifically, please support the bigint data type so we have a 64-bit integer to use as a primary key.

Generally, all built-in data types should be supported as long as they are also supported by the SQL-99 ISO standard.
