I run Kubuntu 9.04 with KDE 4.3b2 from the backport ppa at home and at work since the day it was available and I am very pleased with.
Also love Digikam 1.0b1.

only problems I've had are Plasma imploding and taking Dbus and KDM with it (only once), and the panel/notifications not being translucent again after toggling compositing off and on. Other than that, it's been rock-solid for me (using the openSUSE Build Service packages)
These were on Debian. I might have to give it a try on my Gentoo box and see if it does the same there.

...then I remembered how much I don't like fighting with Gentoo and rebooted into opensuse. Then again, I'm a born-again Gentoo noob (haven't used it in a couple years because compiling took too long on my old rig), so your mileage may vary.

You probably need to do some unmasking or stuff like that which I can't think off right now, but then you should be done.
I saw that on the Gentoo wiki, but I also noticed I had to unmask Portage to use the split packages. That seemed a bit too adventurous for me. Maybe in another couple days I'll give it a shot.
