It uses the standard user dirs for settings and config. The installer only 
writes directly in the installation dir but the applications show normal KDE

Actually i do not know exactly, it should respect the environment variables 
(XDG_DATA_HOME, XDG_CONFIG_HOME, KDEHOME) afaik. I have not tested it, but 
you probably know the code there better then me. 

The package does not wipe existing configuration but you will have problems if 
you have an old akonadiserverrc for example which is configured for mysql 
since your settings would override the defaults of the package and may lead 
to a misconfigured setup.
To be save i would suggest you make backups of the Userdirs or just run the e5 
as a different user for some first testing.
