A check how much rows was impacted by query is relative often task. So we
can do this task more user friendly.

Second motivation - ROW_COUNT is working for static and for dynamic SQL -
it can be partial replace of FOUND variable.

But now, when I am thinking about it - it can be strange for some users
too. Pretty often we use implicit LIMIT for query execution. So ROW_COUNT
can be probably different than users expecting.
