Is there any known procedure to migrate all the existing KDE3
NetworkManager connections to a new KDE4 installation?

No there isn't, sorry. I rejected doing this because it would have taken time
away from core features like supporting all the encryption and VPN options.
KNM3 uses a complex storage scheme to serialise the Qt 3 DBUS library's
internal model of connections as multi-valued KConfig fields; to produce a
parser for this in the KDE 4 version would be a lot of work, and since the Qt
4 DBUS internals are different it would have been another lot of work to use
this serialisation scheme directly.

If you want to do it by hand, the KDE 3 connections are all in
~/.kde/share/config/knetworkmanagerrc and the KDE 4 connections are separate
files in ~/.kde4/share/apps/networkmanagement/connections/* with an index of
connections in ~/.kde/share/config/networkmanagmentrc.
