A new account won't help much because the package replacement is system-wide,
an entirely separate Fedora installation is needed if you want to be able to
revert safely, or you can use a live CD like the F9 Alpha one. Downgrading all
KDE packages after you upgraded to KDE 4 is a big PITA.
But it's correct that it's safest to use a different account / home directory
too to make sure your KDE 3 settings won't be touched.
