Default Does KDE4 require KDE3?

How much of KDE3 is required to run KDE4? I was looking through the Makefile for kde4 and I noticed a lot of references to kde3. As a matter of fact, the following two lines appear close to the bottom of the file.

USE_KDELIBS_VER=3
USE_KDEBASE_VER=3


Is there any way I can install only KDE4 libraries and applications or am I going to have to delete/reinstall/rebuild individual KDE3 applications as they get ported to KDE4?

P.S. KDE4 will not be installed on my primary partition so I can piecemeal this desktop together manually if at all possible. Who knows, it might even be fun tracking down applications and their dependencies to make sure the DE is KDE4.x "pure".
