In Qml :

Item { id: obj1 }
Item {
  id: obj2
  parent: obj1

is more or less akin to :
QQuickItem* obj1 = new QQuickItem;
QQuickItem* obj2 = new QQuickItem;

As you can see in QML's QtObject (== C++'s QObject), there is no direct way
to call QObject::setParent : http://doc.qt.io/qt-5/qml-qtqml-qtobject.html

Basically, QQuickItem::parent == QObject::parent ; this function is not
accessible from QML.
