Subversion is using the username to record who made changes, i.e.,
it's copied to the svn:author property of the revision. If you
install a pre-revprop-change hook allowing such changes, you can
change this property to whatever you like. If you want to change
username "bob" to "william", you can write a script that checks each
revision's svn:author property and, if it's "bob", changes it to
"william". I don't know if there's a script like that already written
that you could use.

If you're using authz, then usernames could be in there as well, and
you'd have to change them there as well.
