I can't find them either - do you know where in kio they exist?

I'd consider two alternatives: if you don't need progress info, Python 
provides all the necessary machinery for doing copies and moves already, 
either through shutil or just os.system and similar mechanisms.

Otherwise, the KIO::Job hierarchy (esp KIO::FileCopyJob) is available. I 
haven't ever done anything with it so I don't have example code, but it 
should be fully implemented.
