[ADMB Users] survey of memory settings in ADMB

Thanks for taking this initiative, Ian.
The Coleraine stock assessment model had these settings in the
TOP_OF_MAIN_SECTION back in 2001,
arrmblsize = 250000;
and by 2003 the TOP_OF_MAIN_SECTION had changed to:
arrmblsize = 5000000;
I presume these changes were made because users had been running into
memory limits relating to 'arrmblsize', 'gradstack_buffer_size', and
'cmpdif_buffer_size'. But I can't vouch whether the authors "put thought
into the choices" or not.
Personally I have almost never run into memory limits, but I hear ADMB-RE
users need to increase the memory limits in most applications.
