I had a similar requirement from $client, where based on an application
value, "cancelled" records were either "included" or "excluded".

I tried to work at it by horsing around with the SQL generation,
and finally just punted, happily to using VIEWs because I was using
a *real* database (postgresql).

You might consider that MySQL is definitely not the optimum choice any
