f4 IS + 135 or f2.8 IS II?

I've had this aversion to the big white lens so I got the 70-200 f4 IS for outdoor sports and indoors with good light and a 135 f2 for indoors with bad light. Nice and compact to carry, but I keep taking a peek at the 70-200 2.8 IS II.

I know it's been discussed a lot, but what's your latest thoughts on the more compact zoom/prime combo or just one big zoom? I do like the thought of one lens vs two, but I do like the size of the current set-up. The body is a T1i which I'm pretty pleased with.
Thanks.
