Zope Enthusiasts,

I'm new to Zope so forgive me if the answer to this question is obvious.  If
one performs a select with a limit clause is it possible to determine how
many results would have been returned if there was no limit?  For example,
if I wanted to select the first picture in a photo album but wanted to know
the total number of pictures in the album, how would I do that via Z SQL?
With MySQL it can be done this way:

SELECT SQL_CALC_FOUND_ROWS, * from Pictures where AlbumID = 25 LIMIT 1;


According to the "Z SQL Methods User's Manual" multiple SQL statements can
be included in a Z SQL method but that no more than one select statement can
be included.  The above MySQL technique requires two select statements.
