Upgrade to K20D - worth it?

A K20D has come available near to me - for 100 more than I can get for my K200D body! I am agonising about whether to upgrade though - is the 100 worth the difference in IQ?
(I know the controls are also nicer but for me that's counterbalanced by the increase in weight/size).

Appreciate this has been done to death, but the old threads were mainly when both cameras were new and people were choosing which one to upgrade to, not whether to upgrade from one to the other.

Sticking with what I have ... I just can't imagine the K20d looking as good with my little K and A primes on it! I'll await the K-7 price drop...

Maybe this can help your decision. (I have a K200D, and I see no reason to upgrade to K7, K20, or 'downgrade' to K-x. I don't use the burst mode, and I prefer K200D's excellence in ISO 100 to K-x high ISO capabilities.)
