Actually it depends on whether you use it in a distro that supplanted KDE3 
with (alphaware) KDE 4.0 (e.g. Fedora, as with Grub Legacy supplanted by 
Grub2; and Mandriva), or added KDE4 as an additional installation choice 
(e.g. openSUSE 12.3 released this month offering both KDE 3.5 and KDE 4.10, 
also as with Grub Legacy and Grub2; and Mageia 3's offer of both Grub Legacy 
and Grub2, having learned a huge lesson from KDE3->KDE4). 3 & 4 can't both 
use .kde/ (cf. /boot/grub plus /boot/grub2 vs. only /boot/grub) in the same 
$HOME without causing big trouble.
"The wise are known for their understanding, and pleasant
words are persuasive." Proverbs 16:21 (New Living Translation)
