// profides function user_holdings_array()
// from table LEDGERS, calculates total holdings of each held symbol for a single userid 
// oddity: symbols never held will be undef, symbols held but zeroed out will be zeros.
// If you are using these numbers for something important, 
// you should LOCK tables ledgers or they might change on you!
// Because amounts are calculated aggregates, you can't commit the
//  classic textbook problem of 2 people updating holdings and making
//  stuff appear or disappear from/to nowhere.
// BUT, if you are calling the function more than once, or using
// the data to decide elgibility for trading, debt/equity ratios,
// or even trying to aggregate pretty functions over users, watch out.
