I'm pretty sure readGDAL from rgdal (that raster uses) will keep as
integers, so you can build an empty raster and copy the values over. But
will need to derive from the rgdal version to catch all the metadata
(structure, extent, and crs).
I think it's doable and will try later. There are other options but nothing
