Now that the 1D is discontinued and the price has dropped a good bit I wonder if I would be better off with it's 4meg sensor, because of it's larger size, than the 1D's 6meg?

You dont put what you intend to use the camera for? Both of these are fantastic cameras in most fields. For sport photography I would go for the 1D purely from a frame per second advantage, as well as having a much larger buffer size, and the ability of the camera to do 2 processes at the same time (view a picture and clear the buffer). The difference between 4Mpix and 6Mpix is not a huge jump and becomes irrelevant if you dont intend to print photo's above A4 size. If you were looking for A3 size then I personally would go for the 10D (I'm sure many would say that the 1d is as good at A3 size).
The other difference to look at is that a 1d should get around 100- 150 thousand shutter acuations whereas the 10d i believe is only around 50 000.
I guess at the ned of the day it all depends on how deep your wallet is, and what your style of photography is.
