*Once* is doable.  We can do a lot of refactoring of old code during  
that anyway, clean away unused APIs, etc.

*Twice* (that is, once from com.ecyrd.jspwiki to  
org.apache.incubator.jspwiki; then from org.apache.incubator.jspwiki  
to org.apache.jspwiki) is not so nice.

Besides, us doing search-replace on other people's code and then  
redistributing it is very probably not ok anyway.  Our own code is  
trivial to modify; all the external code is not.
