Changing the username in a transaction requires that you modify the
svn:author revprop.

Changing a user's username just requires that you change it in your
authorization & authentication files. If you're using SSH or LDAP for
your authentication, this could get a little trickier. You'll also
need them to clear their cached credentials on the client side.

Why not just issue the user a new ID, and disable the old one?
