I doubt that one would have to reinstall, in fact, if he were to keep
his /home/user directory than a reinstall would do no good. After
removing KDE 4.3 rename ~/.kde to ~/.kde-old and then restart: it
should give you a clean KDE. The user could them pick out the files
from ~/.kde-old that he needs (such as Kmail).
