Comparison between current user model and the new user model

XYZ should be replaced by the member short name. For multiple trader groups, add -2 to the CompID for the second group (Trader group 1 = 'XYZ', trader group 2 = 'XYZ-2') and so on. Only the NGM CompID differs and that CompID is how you choose which session you connect to (what is currently known as channels). In the future we will be changing the format of these user names to something simpler.
