There was some speculation that stability problems are exacerbated by
having both versions, so it's sensible to remove kde3.

AFAIK there is no automatic migration, it's like installing a different
desktop. I know you can copy wallet files across, and you can probably
carry some other data over, but for the most part it isn't worth it.

I'd suggest you back-up or rename your .kde and .kderc to keep them
safe. KDE4 is very much the "new coke" of desktops.
