> As of ARROW-5190, the R package's dependency on *tibble* has been moved from 
> *Imports* to *Suggests*. However, this signature of *read_parquet(), 
> read_delim_arrow(), read_json_arrow(),* and *read_feather()* all still have 
> an argument called "as_tibble".
> Per [this 
> comment|[https://github.com/apache/arrow/pull/4454#issuecomment-500563214],] 
> the argument "as_tibble" is a misnomer. If that argument is given a TRUE, 
> those functions will return a data.frame, not a tibble. I agree with Neal's 
> comment...I think that instead of changing return type based on a boolean, it 
> would be better for all the *read_** functions to return a data.frame and for 
> other types of operations to get their own functions.
> I think it's important to consider this type of user-facing breaking change 
> _now_ while the R package's version is still 0.x.
> As always, thanks for hearing me out!
