AFAIK, KDE-Trinity is also for those who don't want to upgrade/use KDE4, this is 
the case with me . I don't know how well supported running both versions in 
parallel is, it may depend on which distro you use. Trinity is rock solid on 
Debian Squeeze, as long as I run the Trinity DE. Trinity apps can have issues 
when running under a different DE or WM, in my experience, Windowmaker.

 On Debian squeeze I use Okular from KDE4, Debians dependency matrix pulls in 
a 'ton' of KDE4 stuff, aka libs and such, just to run one app. I have lots of 
hardware resources so I don't mind... as long as nothing affects my Trinity 
install. Don't use amarok so no experience there.
