Changing someone's username?

Can you actually change a user's username? I realize they could just create a new account but then they would lose everything attached to their old account. Can you just hack the mysql database or is it more complicated than that?

    As an admin you can go on any account page and change its username on the "change personal information" form.

    As a user, you can change your own username.

    It can be disabled with "$Configuration['ALLOW_NAME_CHANGE'] = '0';"
