Canon Rebel XS / 1000D

Is there a new Rebel in the pipeline for Christmas? With Nikon dropping prices on the D40 to below some P&S's, and Pentax readying a replacement to the K100D (apparently the K200D isn't it.. so says a salesrep) that will cost about $14, it only makes sense that Canon will look to upgrade the XT to something a little more appealing.

All this came about with a leaked model name in Canon's latest version of DPP.

What are the specs? who knows? I wouldn't be surprised at all to see the XT being shown the door.
