allow for renaming 'Name' of user
Currently the Name field of a user cannot be changed once it is defined.
This means that for a user olduser whose name needs to be changed into newuser, one needs to add a new user newuser manually add permissions on all repositories on which olduser had rights: add newuser with appropriate rights, remove olduser * delete the olduser user
A computer will be much better at doing this for 30 repositories per user than I am.. ;-)
Is it safe/sufficient to find and replace in the repositories.xml and users.xml file for this purpose (as a temporary workaround)?
FYI the context is migration from internal authentication to LDAP authentication where a couple of usernames have been made to follow consistent rules in LDAP that were a bit looser in the original internal authentication.
