Sorry for jumping that late on this thread... Didn't find time earlier.

I wonder how different is it from the totalSize() signal carried by KJob? It 
looks like the exact same thing to me, except there's a "unit" attached 
to "total files".

Well, the plan would be to use this D-Bus interface directly, not from the 
kjob itself, but from the kjobuidelegate. That was the intent with the 
current design. I just need to find time to finally get the remaining 
refactorings in the code... it's just sitting in my head for now.
