Your iceweasel config is safe and happy in ~/.mozilla.

Your kmail etc configs can be migrated with just:

    cp -a ~/.kde ~/.trinity

Some people rename .kde to .trinity but a copy is better although
it wastes a little disk space.  A symlink might work but I haven't
tried it.

There are a couple of problems with the "install a bunch of trinity
packages" step which we're currently discussing on this list.
