If you are talking about friction shifting then yes, a long cage RD will work for you. If you are talking indexing then chances are good it won't work, or it won't work well, so if you want to keep the indexing I would vote to wait until you can replace everything at once with the group you want. In the case of friction, replace what you want to you hearts content.
I am currently running the following on:
Campagnolo Veloce front triple (30,42,52)
Campagnolo Record Triple FD
Campagnolo Centaur RD mid-cage
Campagnolo friction downtube shifters
Sunrace 7 speed - 13,15,16,18,20,22,24
SRAM PC870 Chain
