When I was in the transition from Lenny to Squeeze also passed from KDE3.5 
to Trinity, I had both installed more or less side by side. KDE3.5 was 
from Lenny - installed in /usr, Trinity was in /opt/trinity.

As I remember, I had problems with only a few packages - for example 
kuickshow that something installed into /usr and was in conflict with the 
version from KDE3.5.
