It is my understanding you can use Migration Assistant after a clean install.

Migration assistant can be run whenever you like. It's in the Utilities folder.

You can even use it to migrate accounts & data from multiple computers. I used it to migrate my old user accounts from an iBook and an eBook to my new MacBook Pro.

(It didn't merge the accounts, but at least I had all the data on one Mac. I merged the data manually.)
