Upgrading from KDE4

I was a happy KDE3 user for years, but recently, as part of upgrading Debian I 
got KDE4. I've tried GNOME and various other desktop environments, but I 
didn't find anything I liked. Recently someone debian-users mentioned trinity 
on and it seems to be the desktop environment I'm looking for.

Before I try it out, I would like to know what pitfalls there are in upgrading 
from KDE4 to Debian. The KDE3->KDE4 transition was a bit messy and I think 
it's likely that KDE4 has messed up my old KDE3 configuration. 

Has anyone else done this and what would they advise? Should I start from 
scratch with a clean configuration or will it be OK to copy my existing
