I did as the extension says .. but ..
It looks like it doesn't go through the articles and change the name
tags. I would think you would want this changed also.
If my original login was Dtsig and now it is Davesigafoos then I would
think that all signatures of Dtsig would be changed. This can't just be
text as it will link to the user page (which also shouldn't exist ..
The history all changed.

Subject: Re: [Mediawiki-l] Moved to LDAP, now what for existing users
My question is .. What do I do with all existing User
Do I need to use the Merge/Delete extension to move all of
'joes' articles to josephj?
That is probably the best idea; that way your users keep their
