In theory, copying the whole of ~/.kde/ should work. IIRC there are some
projects around concentrating on backing up KDE settings. One is konserve
(konserve.sf.net). I don't know about others, or whether they do the sort
of thing you're trying to do.

There are plenty of ways to get involved with docs. I've seen a few people
asking about migrating mail, so perhaps this would be an appropriate entry
for the KDE FAQ. If you'd like to write a question/answer pair, and send it
to kde-doc-english at kde.org, or to me, we can include it in the next version
of the FAQ. (Check whether the topic is covered in existing docs though)
