Ah yes, most def and that is how I run it on my test machine. I have many KDE 
3.5.8 programs that I play with under KDE 4, along side their KDE4 
counterparts. I am hoping to soon remove KDE 3 and run straight KDE4 so I can 
really start to get the full effect of the rewrite on the apps. 

I may throw up a VM with KDE 4 only to start helping with bug zapping.
