Patch don't touch DROP TABLE IF EXISTS, it's already presents in the
script. Anyway prefix.sh don't change any statements in SQL, just
prefix tables. If IF EXISTS presented in SQL for Postgres then it is
SQL-script problem, not prefix.sh.

The patch adds prefixing for UPDATE SQL statements in prefix.sh.

Sorry, previous patch broken (space was skiped). Next patch works ok.
Also prefixing for DROP TABLE IF EXISTS statement added.

I've tested the patch  and can say it works. Don't know if we need this
feature, as neither statement is used by Drupal core.

I would say: go for it. It works, and I already once had to hand-edit
all my custom modules because this thing was not in the prefix.sh
This works as expected, and makes prefixing contributed sql files

DROP TABLE IF EXISTS does not work with postgresql (it does not support
IF EXISTS statement)
