Can we choose more meaningful prefix examples than dl_ and d_share? 
What does dl_ stand for?  Otherwise, this patch looks good.  Maybe
using 'master_' and 'shared_'?

Improves instructions in /drupal/sites/default/settings.php:
* How to escape URL characters in $db_url.
* How to use the array format of $db_prefix.

Looks real good. My suggestions:

"You can set prefixes" into "You can optionally set prefixes"
"If a prefix is specified, its value will be prepended with this
string." into "If a prefix is specified, the table name will be
prepended with its value."
