make kde3 theme match with kde4 style


I'm using kde4 and decided to keep it and not reverting to kde3. However, since kcontrol of kde3 collides with kde4 I am stuck with either the default kde3 theme or the last one I have used. This is very ugly because kde3 apps are still unavoidable and the completely inconsistant look is disturbing imho.

Does anyone know a way to change kde3 colours and theme (but mainly colours) under kde4 ? I thought it could maybe be done manually by hacking some config files under $HOME/.kde but I'm unable to find the right ones.
