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
JSINGLE.

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
arises.

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
all...
