[wp-hackers] repeating fields in usermeta?

You're probably right. I'd like this solved more than anything else.  
Still, I did up a patch of my own before I saw yours.


As noted in my comment in Trac, the only advantage my solution offers  
over yours is that it makes user meta and post meta identical in  
behavior and nearly identical in code. It also occurs to me that the  
post_meta and user_meta functions could be consolidated into one set  
of functions that works identically simply by adding a parameter to  
identify if it's working on posts or users.

Your solution has the advantage of being less dramatic. Either works  
for me in the short run.
