hm.  i use this approach and have secondary indexes configured on the
columns if i need to do a specific search for an address.

alternately, in the user cf, if you wanted to be very uncool, but
optimized for always retrieving the user email addresses, you could
have the uuid for the user record and another row for uuid:email and
each column is an email ... this way you can allow them to add as many
as they want with key being the "type" as in the original email and
the value being the email ...
