Mainly this is to prevent unnecessary updates to when things did not change.
For example, I used this in kcm_clock to prevent update of the hour and minute 
line edit when only the second changed.  So if you selected the clock to 
change the time for example,  it will not be automatically deselected 
everytime the second ticks.  This could of course can be done differently 
from within the app itself, but one thing I noticed is that many people do 
not bother to do that.  Perhaps meeting them half way will result in 
consistent behavior in some of the little things that could add up to create
