 Thanks for the feedback, @imath.

 similar meta key names :)

 We do need to prefix the table name if we're keeping a separate blog meta
 table due to how WordPress looks for the global property in the `$wpdb`
 global in `_get_meta_table()`:

 However, if we decide to migrate our data to WP's blog meta table, then
 prefixing the meta key should be doable. When we do the migration, we
 would change all our meta keys to add our prefix.  Then in our blog meta
 functions, we would just automatically add the prefix during lookups to
 avoid breaking existing blog meta entries.

 > I also think, it could be a nice opportunity to have an upgrade tool to
 fix some other areas like favorites one of these days 😉
