Changing principal names isn't supported, it requires deleting and
adding the principal with a new name
Recommend something like (perhaps i should add this API to Jetspeed):

public void changeGroupName(String oldGroupName, String newGroupName)
    Group group = groupManager.addGroup(newGroupName);
    List<User> usersInGroup = getUsersInGroup(oldGroupName);
    groupManager.removeGroup(oldGroupName); // will remove association
for user->group
    for (User user : usersInGroup)
   	groupManager.addUserToGroup(user.getName(), newGroupName);
