What is it about your current setup that you find lacking? That will really drive which purchase will best fit your needs. I.E. the key is whether the body or lens setup is causing disatisfaction and what specific areas you're unhappy in.

Iteresting issue! I have the 300D and liked it because it was the first "reasonably" priced Canon DSLR. I "upgraded" to the 20D because the 300D crashed. I had the camera repaired by Canon but my confidence level with it dropped tremendously. When I convinced myself to upgrade I started thinking about what I disliked about the 300D. The 300D has no PC sync for studio flash,lower FPS (I was always waiting for the 300D to catch-up), start-up seems to take forever, 300D's RAW filesgenerate two files vs the 20D's 1 file, the 300D limits the size of the JPEG file when you shoot RAW+ JPEG, 300D does not have the "whiz" wheel,has 6 Megapixels, and it has a silver body.Seriously thereal clinchers for me were the instant startup and higher FPS of the 20D that sold me.

So I agree with JohnG, decide what's important to you. The 300D is my knock around camera and my backup now.
