Storable for user preferencesby Bod (Parson)

Bod has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I need to store user preferences...
Currently, there are only two user preferences and these are stored as fields in the User table of the database. However, the number of preferences is going to increase. I guess there will be around 20 or so eventually. Experience suggests that most users won't change most of their preferences from the default setting. Therefore, I don't really want to add all the preferences to the User table when nearly all of them will be set to the default values.
