Ah.  I did a checkout of civicspace.  I see in /install.php there's a 
install_create_tables() function that does the table name prefixing and 
execution.  The approach taken there is similar to one I was considering 
(grabbing the query file and splitting it).  Unfortunately, at this time, 
this script doesn't handle the array syntax for $db_prefix, though, of 
course, that can be changed.

Another tack in my mind is making a PHP script which would take the one 
static query file, doing preg_replace and then saving the results to a new 
query file.  The user would then run the new query file.

Yet another is to have each table be a separate query file which the 
install script sucks up, adjusts and executes as needed.

All of the methods I was thinking of would go through the subdirectories 
in /sites, do include settings.php to get the various $db_prefix'es the 
user desires.

Hey, Adrian, how about letting us see what you've come up with for this
