KDE4 or stay with KDE3

I have elected to test KDE4 & submit bugs, but it is possible to run 
KDE4 as long as you have the KDE3 tools installed as well. A good 
example is Konqueror 3 is a must as connecting to SMB shares or using 
ark are useless in KDE4 at present & Dolphin is a total waste of space.
