Best Walk-around L Lens??

After 5 months with my 30D and 17-85IS I'm very pleased, but now I can't help lusting for L glass. The 17-85IS is a great walk-around lens. I wish Canon made an L version at f/2.8 and kept the IS. But they probably know that would kill sales of a lot of other lenses! Seems like Canon knows it's almost impossible to own only one L lens given the current lineup!

So what do I do? 24-70L f/2.8? I'm worried I'd miss the extra 15mm, and wouldn't I miss the IS? 24-105L f/4 IS? Good range, but "only" f/4!

My primary subjects are my two kids ages 1 and 4.

Thanks,
-Jack
