Okay, here's how I did it.
First, add the appropriate "unstable" lines to your "/etc/apt/sources.list".
Second, create a "/etc/apt/preferences" file, and set the priority for
"unstable" packages lower than "testing". Here's mine:
Pin: release a=testing
Pin: release a=unstable
Finally, to force installation/upgrade of kdebase & konqueror packages from
# apt-get -t unstable install kdebase konqueror
You should repeat this for any other KDE packages you wish to upgrade.
