I think it would be dangerous to do that -- we might change the prefix
to something that is already used in the database.

There is already sufficient instruction in wp-config.php.  If it is
ignored, that's not our problem...

Maybe a warning and aborting, if we must add something?  Personally
I think even that is just unnecessary bloat.
