Having used both  TL2003 and TL2004 in recent weeks, let me share my 
experiences with you: In TL 2003 metapost and htlatex was broken for 
me; on the other hand, after applying Bruno's babel patch, TL2004  runs 
fine and faster than TL2003 with the only (minor) exception that the 
option 'nowrite' in mpfic may not be used.

Of course your experiences may differ depending on the packages you 
use, but for someone with similar usage behaviour my recommendation is 
clear: to install TL2004 (after having uninstalled the old installation 
completely - except your personal texmf).
