I think when 4.0 was being prepared, the KDE devs had no migration
plans. Being a major release, this was seen as a transition that would
break things. AFAIK, The only team that did some work in helping migrate
user settings was the Debian KDE Team. They developed a tool, iirc,
kaboom, which did a fairly good job.
