Result of show syntacs is uncustomizable.

How to repeat:
- show index from <table> or any other show command

Suggested fix:
Allow for alle non statements that are not customizable the following syntacs:
- select * from (<statement>) aa where ...

The idea is that the result of these statements can be treated as virtuable tables.

Statements that apply:
- show ...
- explain ...

  select * 
  from   (show engines) aa
  where support = 'YES'
  order by engine;

Thank you for a feature request. I am not sure it will be ever implemented, though. We have INFORMATION_SCHEMA now, just for that purpose: to get metadata in a flexible and customizable way.
