I think that you would find this easier to do that in one of the Color Managed applications — such as Photoshop.
Load an Adobe Swatch Exchange file (saved & downloaded from Kuler) in Photoshop; and use Photoshop's Color Picker to give you simultaneous read-outs for each color in the Swatch in RGB, CMYK, L*ab, HSB and Hex values.
I'm not interested in loading the colors from Kuler, or any other Color Managed application. I want to develop my own version of "Kuler".
I know, you will say that there is no point in reinventing the wheel, but I have learnt so much about HSV just by implementing the transformation algorithms and I want to push things further and learn what makes colors "match", from a programmer's perspective (from HSV values rather than the actual color).
