If I use time machine to back all my Snow Leopard files up can I then restore them all into Lion or will this not work? Anybody try it yet?

Previously you could so I don't expect that will change. Depending on whether you are using "Time Capsule" or another WiFi implementation or directly connected, open your "Time Machine" drive and .dmg (if it's WiFi) and then select the drive in "System Preferences". Lion should open it up and update it, which may take a while wirelessly, it's always best to use an ethernet connection when making a first backup or change.
