But it is not. For referential integrity reasons, users and groups 
cannot be deleted (but they can be deactivated).

Warning: This is not recommended, and /I/ would not do it. But -
You /could/ try manipulating the mysql db manually. There are not _that_ 
many places where users are references, but they should be replaced by 
references to other users at least. This is easy for folks who only 
commited a fistful of requests, but for someone working on about 20% of 
all tickets as owner/requestor/commenter/whatever, it would be hell...
