I would go with the 20D because the body size and controls (especially the thumb wheel) are pretty similar to the 50D.

I once borrowed a 350D as a backup to a 20D for a wedding and found it very difficult switching between the two because of the controls.

When I upgraded to the 50D from the XT/350 my plan was to keep the XT and run a 2nd body. As Chris says, I found the XT to be too different to be switching back and forth. No longer could I rapidly change setting on either camera because I was always thinking about how to do it with the different camera. Didn't work out so I sold the XT.
