[wp-hackers] repeating fields in usermeta?

An application I'm working on needs to store an arbitrary number of  
email addresses and phone numbers per user. The wp_users table  
obviously isn't the place, but the wp_usermeta table might not be  
either. The get_ and update_usermeta functions aren't built for it,  

The various postmeta functions are very smart about handling multiple  
entries of the same meta_key per post, but not the usermeta functions.  
Is that by design?
