PathView, which strings its items out along a path. You can thus express your 
items as a circle, zig-zag, or whatever.

The list view has an orientation property that can be set to Vertical or

Yes. If you create a traditional qt model in C++, and you expose an instance 
of that model in QML, you can bind to that model.

Note that there is some documentation at the moment, even if it's not too easy 
to find. To get the docs, you'll have to make the documentation from the Qt 
source containing Declarative UI. Then there should be a section on the 
Declarative UI module. It should include a list of the available elements in 
QML and how to use them.
