Return the unique prefix of `a` with `b`.
Corner cases:
* If `a` and `b` share no prefix, the first letter of `a` is returned.
* If `a` and `b` are equal, `a` is returned.
* If `a` is a prefix of `b`, `a` is returned.
* If `b` is a prefix of `a`, `b` plus the first letter of `a` after the
common prefix is returned.
