"Handlers" are low level. They do not provide many of the features of SQL.

"where SNAME='Mike' and TOTAL > 50" should be feasible, but it may not be exposed.

MAX() would be implemented by reaching for MAXVALUE and reading 1 row "descending".

COUNT() would be done by writing a loop to "read next" until you run out of rows, counting as you go.

I have not heard of anyone using Handlers -- it seems like a waste of programmer productivity.
