While (from my experience) it is safe to change a group by simply
renaming any file from (say) BBaCommunity.BBaCommunity to
Community.Community, I'm not sure that there is a simple way to update
the whole site to the new change.
Maybe a Unix tool would do, scanning all the files and performing
the update, but still links could be around on the internet which,
sooner or later, might generate a 404 error or anything the like.
Perhaps an Apache solution (redirect/rewrite or similar) should also
be considered as a worthy solution.
