Create query for projector in migration (well in code)

Apologies if this has been answered already but the codeplex search seems a bit flaky.

I was wondering if its possible to create a query for use with Projector etc from code (ie i could create one in a module migration ..).

Everything in Orchard can be done in code. Why do you want to do this, however, instead of just querying directly?

Basically i'm writing a module for a client that includes all their customisations for orchard (sets up all their content types in the migration etc). One of the types has a part with a ContentPickerField. Its my intention to use the new version of contentpicker which allows you to limit the content to a query. It would be nice if i could setup that query and the field in the modules migration, so there is no setup needed when the module is enabled.

I have since managed to create a query, and assign that query tot he field in the migration - just need to figure out how to add a filter to said query now.
