Several BigCo employees will have free run over the entire site
including all BigCo client 'portal data'. The client portal data is
pretty much just push-mode. They(clients) shouldn't really be able to
make any changes. It's just there for them to look at. Down the road,
perhaps it would be nice to be able to delegate to a person at each
BigCo client the authority to create new users within their client
portal, but that's not currently a major design consideration. Oh, and
of course a BigCo client can view only their own portal.=20

My intention is that the client name will determine the database and/or
tables that the portal data is pulled from and the username and password
will be used to authorize access to the data in the database/tables.=20
