Disable JSINGLE.  Create JWED and make it a member of group profile JSINGLE,
with the group owning the authority.  Investigate and clean up authority
issues at your leisure.  If JSINGLE is already a member of ACCTING, then
it's a fairly simple matter to create JWED as a member of ACCTING and delete

Alternately, create JWED and have Jane use that ID.  Copy the security from
JSINGLE as best you can remember (group profiles and authorisation lists
help a lot.  Now may be a good time to think about implementing them!)  Keep
JSINGLE around for her to be able to sign on with when a security issue

Depending on the culture involved, perhaps Jane can be convinced that her
user ID is just a series of letters, and doesn't need to be changed at
