I'm finally working on the docs for the new release, and have one  
question here.  Are there any potential reasons NOT to move the rc file  
and just reconfigure the new version from scratch?  Are there any  
potential dangers due to changed format/version/entries?

(Alan - I will also include mention of the two csv rc files.)

I also intend to mention that there may be some items stored by KDE and  
not KMM, such as any passwords stored in kwallet.  Migration of such  
things is beyond the scope of this manual, and should be addressed at  
the level of migrating your entire KDE setup, but most of such items  
are stored under $HOME/.kde4.
