I think the KDE3 applications that are available for KDE4 will replaced, but 
other KDE3 applications will stay (I suppose the KDE3 libraries are still 
there). So, only the replaced KDE3 applications will seen their configuration 
files in .kde overwritten (but you make a copy to ".kde3").
Since I am using KDE4 for a while, I suppose that I can copy (after the 
installation) all the files for ".kde4" to ".kde" to obtain my current 
configuration.
