Subject: Moved to AD auth, can I change page / edit authors?
We were using local accounts for authentication.  We've moved to ad auth now but the account names are not the same (AD account naming structure changed when we had a "from scratch" rebuild).  Is there a way to change the author of all the existing pages and edits so that they appear to have been made by the new author?  Grep and SED from the command line maybe?

so for example previously the page was created / edited by jdoe.
Now they log in through AD as John.Doe

I'd like all the jdoe pages and edits assigned to John.Doe so that we can see who edited what with one search rather than having to combine the results of 2 searches, one for the old name with one for the new name.
