* Subclass `Backbone.JQuery.CollectionView` and override the `createSubview()` method to return a view that corresponds to each model in the collection.
* Instantiate the collection view with a hash of options.
* Call `render()` on the view.

* `dragTolerance`: The number of pixels that the mouse must be moved before the view interprets the action as a dragging movement.
* `scrollTolerance`: The number of pixels that the mouse must be within the edge of the window in order to trigger scrolling when dragging.
* `draggingClass`: Class name to add to item views when dragging. Defaults to `dragging`.
+* `dropMarkerClass`: Class name to add to drop marker element that indicates where an item will be placed. Defaults to `drop_marker`.
* `positionAttribute`: Name of attribute that has the ordinal position of each item. If this is specified, this attribute is maintained, and it is assumed that the collection has a similar comparator that uses the attribute. Otherwise, it is assumed that the collection is not automatically sorted, and dragging items in the view will simply rearrange the collection's contents.
* `dragConstrainX`: If true, dragging will be constrained to the Y axis only.
* `showPlaceholder`: If true, while dragging, leave a blank area where the dragged item was. Defaults to true.
+There are two CSS aspects that might need to be provided:
+* The drag class. (Specified with the `draggingClass` option.) This class is added to the item view's element when it is being dragged.
+* The drop marker class. (Specified with `dropMarkerClass` option.) When dragging an item, an indicator element is placed that highlights where the item will be dropped.
