Well, they are gone.
After the kde4 install (aptitude install kde4-minimal then aptitude install
kde4), all that is left in ~.kde/share/ is mimelink, services and
~.kde4/share has an apps folder but it is all new.
Aptitude did not report any problems during the install but at the next
startup there was a warning about no "config" folder in ~.kde/share.
