Actually, this is a common misunderstanding of what kuiserver does.

KGet is strictly for downloading files, kuiserver (JobViewServer) goal is to 
show all time consuming operations (I/O operations like file copying, CD/DVD 
burning, mail downloading, data importing in applications...).

The most important thing is what I said about being cross-desktop. Having this 
spec in usage would let you run Nautilus on KDE, and when copying files, let 
the KDE progress dialog come up, or a new row in the progress manager if you 
didn't want separate windows, for instance.
