KPatience gives each deal a unique indentifying number (which it uses internally to randomize the deck during the initial deal). This feature allows you to replay a deal of interest or to attempt a particularly difficult deal recommended by a friend. Especially dedicated players may wish to "beat" KPatience by playing all 2147483647 deals consecutively for each of the game types.

Note that for Freecell, KPatience's deal numbers match those described in the Freecell FAQ.
