 `get_user_meta()` expects `$user_id`, followed by `$meta_key`. So do
 `update_user_meta()`, `delete_user_meta()`, `update_user_option()` and

 `get_user_option()` sticks out in that it expects these parameters in
 reversed order, which just caused me some major frustration even though I
 had looked it up before.

 To enable backwards compability, we could test which of the two parameters
 is an integer and then swap them if necessary (unless of course meta keys
 can be integers too, I have not checked that, but it seems unlikely).
