While that might certainly be an option, I don't know if that's the most 
desirable. Now, we have some kind of implicit configuration: the user has an 
kuiserver applet on his desktop or has the kuiserver app running, and it will 
be used, or he doesn't have it running and the oldskool dialogs will be used. 
Even when he adds a kuiserver later on, or removes it, the behavior of this 
jobtracker will automatically change.
While it is easy enough to make this jobtracker read a config option and 
decide it's behavior based on that (well, the most difficult question in this 
case would be: where to place this option), I personally think the 'automatic'  
setting (as it is now in this patch) would be the most desirable. But I'm 
absolutely not a usability expert so feel free to convince me having this 
setting is in fact better. :)
