What's the actual benefit of that porting?

Unifying and fixing all our KCMs is the intention, there's new designs from Andy.
Use of QtQuick is a side effect, but the intended direction if we're rewriting something anyway.

There's multiple threads on plasma-devel if you have something to follow up. I don't think it's something for the GSOC thread as it's work already happening. Thread "System Settings KCM Tidying" is probably the best overview.
