Actually I think that should be a feature of the kuiserver, not something we 
want to control from a kcm and which changes the kind of default tracker used 
by KIO.

This way we'll at last move the dialogs out of process again, like it was 
before 4.0. With your previous changes we made them in process temporarily 
because you were stuck on kuiserver, now it's time to fix that.

Well, I'm generally not fond of code duplication, but for this particular case 
I'd simply copy the relevant part of kwidgetjobtracker into the kuiserver. In 
my view they don't necessarily need to be the same or shared in any way, and 
we might want to make them evolve differently in the future (in such case it 
would be bad to have it in the public API if it's only used internally by
