I have multiple backups of everything. The problem here is that they
just don't work on different architectures. Anyway, I have apparently
managed quite well with judicious copying of stuff from ~/.kde. But I
was only able to do so, because my understanding of how things work is
rather above that of an ordinary user.

Yes, that's what I did for my *regular* MySQL (and PostgreSQL) database
running on a database server. I just haven't found any way to dump the
data from an *embedded* MySQL database such as Amarok uses.
