> The GatewayResourceProfile has ComputeResourcePreferences that are now used to specify
default values for compute resources, but a GroupResourceProfile's GroupComputeResourcePreferences
should be used for the actual authentication/allocation charged for the job.
> This means that a GroupResourceProfile's GroupComputeResourcePreference should either
> * a different loginUserName
> * or an allocationProjectNumber
> from the corresponding ComputeResourcePreference in the GatewayResourceProfile.  This
way a GroupResourceProfile can't accidentally use the account specified in a GatewayResourceProfile
> The main use case for this is that a gateway admin can create a ComputeResourcePreference
with a loginUserName and credential store token that handles logging in to the compute resource
and then a user can create a GroupComputeResourcePreference that essentially only needs to
specify an allocation number (well, and the user would need to authorize that loginUserName
to be able to use the allocation, depending on the compute resource's policy).
