Not sure what using E with KDE involves but I'm sure there are

You can still run all you gnome applications. Although the "K
equivalents" will be better integrated with the rest of kde, it is
certainly possible to use the gnome applications instead. So there
is no need to learn a new application if you are comfortable with the
gnome programs you are using now. However if you post a list of the
gnome programs you use I could suggest some KDE alternatives.

Unstable certainly does have KDE 3.1 available. I've been running
KDE3 from unstable for about 2 weeks now and its quite stable. A
clean install should go without a hitch.
