    A hacky way of doing it might be to modify MySQLDatabase.php (sapphire/core/model/) - wherever there is an SQL query with $table or $tableName, prefix it with whatever you want. I haven't tried it and you'd have to be careful with future upgrades, but it might be a temporary fix for your situation.
