There are multiple levels.

In uiserver percent is what matters:
      return i18n( "%1 % of %2 " ).arg( percent ).arg( KIO::convertSize( totalSize ) );

Below, in the job (Job::emitPercent), the percent is calculated from processedSize and totalSize,
to have that code in one place and not require that the ioslaves have to do it.
The percent signal from the job is what goes to uiserver; so Thiago is wrong, it *is* used.

[Someone then added SlaveBase::processedPercent though, for the case where the total size can't
be known (e.g. kio_audiocd with compression), but that's not implemented yet.]
