"Prepend" appears in every online dictionary I consulted. For a dictionary to list it and give the usual meaning for it, pretty much demonstrates "prepend" functioning as a real word. That and its 1.3 million hits on google.

"Prepend" certainly has a commonly understood meaning, particularly in computing. 

To the extent that "prepend" has became popular as the appropriate-sounding opposite of "append", that is exactly why it _should_ be used in this context... where one might well need to discuss adding strings before or after, and be clear about the distinction.
