My thoughts are that you should dist-upgrade to 8.10 now, and if you
want, use the ppa repository for kde 4.2 since 8.10 still uses kde

AFAIK amarok2 only targets to Intrepid now.

Don't know that one.

I'd say yes, I know I had kde4 in Hardy (used a ppa repository). There
are some issues with not having kde 3 versions of certain packages
anymore, and when I did a dist-upgrade it removed many of those,
because I was dist-upgrading to kde4 and there were no more 3.5.x
versions of those packages - like some games, for instance. But if you
keep track of those packages that are removed, you can later go look
for kde4 versions of them.
