I think prefixes are from bad style world.
There is easier solution. Many DBs (I hope all) allow you to quote
indentifiers (table names, columns, schema...) in your queries. I sent
such for DBIx::SB and it was applied, but then was reverted because of
Pg which makes quoted indentifiers case-sensetive and this broke RT.

We could apply such change in JDBI, I find case-sensetivity easier to
follow requirement then reserved word, because if you don't know words
of all DBs then your app is not portable, as I remember I wrote that
patch to port RT on Firebird because RT uses identifiers that are
reserved in Firebird.
