If you don't want to lose edit history (WHO editied what), you need a 
userbase merging and history rewriting tool (does not exist yet).

If you can live without that history, you can either drop part or all of 
your userbase (and let the missing ones re-register).

Keep ACLs in mind in case you have "secret" pages and make sure no wrong 
person registers as a privileged username.
