Unless you're perfectly happy with what you get out of the camera and that's all you'll ever need, you're always better off shooting raw. You can extract the embedded JPEGs from a batch of raw files (the same JPEGs you would have got if you shot raw+JPEG),

Not true on my XSi and probably not true on most dSLR's.

RAW+JPG give me a 12 MP JPG file.  However the JPG image embedded in the RAW file is about 3 MP.

Earlier dSLR raw files included a smaller JPG.  Not sure when, but later dSLRs, give me full size JPGs.  For example, with the T2i and the T4i, I can extract full size 18 MP JPG from a raw file.
