Cool User name change?

Out of curiosity--is it possible for an admin to change a user's posting name, if requested? I know some boards give the ability to posters (ie, PHPBB3 does) but it's often disabled to stop people from swapping names every 3 seconds.

I'm thinking of doing a name change on the AMC places I visit, but I'd like to keep my post history if possible, rather than just re-registering.

It might be a good idea to put your old name in your signature and to continue using your current avatar for a while so that people aren't too confused by your new name.
