unstable KDE situation?

Greetings everyone,

I am running pure unstable, with KDE 2.1. I know that KDE 2.2 is currently 
making its way into unstable. I'm looking forward to upgrading, but I can't 
afford a complete KDE crash and burn at the moment.

Is it safe to upgrade? I know it takes 10 days for the packages to clear.

When I try to do my apt-get dist-upgrade, I get the following:

Calculating Upgrade... Done
The following packages will be REMOVED:
  abbrowser aktion ark kab karm kcalc kcharselect kchart kcron kde-designer 
  kdebase-crypto kdebase-libs kdelibs3 kdelibs3-crypto kdepasswd kdevelop kdf 
kdm kedit keystone
  kfind kfloppy kformula kghostview khexedit kiconedit killustrator kit kivio 
kjots klisa kmail
  kmix kmoon knewsticker knode knotes koffice-libs konqueror konsole 
korganizer korn koshell
  kpackage kpaint kpm kpresenter kscd kscreensaver ksirc kspread ksysctrl 
ksysv ktalkd ktimemon
  ktron ktux kuser kview kweather kword libkmid libkonq3 libqt-dev pixie 
quanta secpolicy
The following NEW packages will be installed:
73 packages upgraded, 1 newly installed, 69 to remove and 0  not upgraded.
Need to get 43.8MB of archives. After unpacking 118MB will be freed.

Needless to say, I don't want to remove all of KDE. I've been following the 
thread, and I know that KDE 2.2 is making its way into unstable. 

How can I tell when KDE will be upgradeable using only unstable? Is it ready 
to go?

Thanks . . .
