Private variables in CFCs

My least favorite bit of ColdFusion objects (CFCs) came up again toay on CF-Talk:

Cool new featues to come post the soon to be released 1.3 are CFC inspection ('if it can find it, it can hint to you what the methods and arguments are') and hints for method-local variables. These are all features considered core in something like the Idea Java IDE, and will help a lot.

Nested ands and ors in Reactor's OO queries

Or, to put it another way, how can I put brackets in the where clause of Reactor's query ?
(Reactor ? That's a framework for ColdFusion that transparently generates a variety of objects which can be used to interact with a variety of database systems.)

So, I want to be able to say in my query:
