Is 24-105mm L really worth $1,100?

I really want to get this lens - the 24-105mm L - to go on my 5D, but I'm choking on the price. I've spent $800+ on the MP-E and it's a magnificent lens, and I've spent about $600 on the 70-200/4L and it's one of the best lens values I've ever seen. But geez, that's a lot more money for the 24-105. Can it possibly be worth that kind of dough?

I really want to get this lens, and I've got a big vacation coming up (so I can rationalize it). Please talk me into it.
