#3 Adding prefixes to database tables


Would it be possible to add a prefix to all IPPlan
database tables? That way they could share a database
with other apps. For example, I have a 1 database
allocated to me. In it I have my Mambo (CMS) system
which has the prefix mos_ for each of it's tables, and
I have another expense tracking system that has the
prefix exp_ on all of it's tables. That way (for
those of us that don't have the rights to create
databases for each app) we can run multipe database
apps on a single database?

Thanks in advance,

    This is a good idea but impractical at such a late stage of
    development. For one this this is a MASSIVE change. It will
    also totally break the seamless schema update procedure and
    force me to add huge amounts of conditional code to get this
    working. I cannot do this, sorry.
