[JDEV] Changing Jabber Server Name To FQDN With Out XDB problems

The big question is whether or not you have had any external contact via
internal s2s?  If not you could make a script to change all the
subscriptions to the new jids, move the directory to the new name, and then
bring the server back up.  Sadly this might be a bit more complex for some
of the transports, since they do JID hashing to name their XDB files.
Browse one of the xdb files and see if it makes sense to you where to change
the names, and feel free to ask questions.

Any perl hackers want to make this script?  I know you can do it fast =)
