When can we expect new MacBook Pros?

I've been planning an upgrade to a MacBook Pro for a few months, but had been waiting for MacWorld, assuming that there would be a hardware revision. Now that the keynote has come and gone, sans even a spec bump, how long can I expect to wait for the next revision?

The most obvious possibilities to me:
1) There's no new major hardware revision on the horizon, and all I can expect is a processor bump soon.
2) Apple plans to integrate the multi-touch trackpad and etc. into the rest of the laptop line -- i.e., a major hardware revision -- but those models aren't ready yet.
The latter seems more likely to me, but does that mean I'm faced with waiting for the next keynote before I can finally upgrade to an Intel Mac? (I work in video and do a lot of editing, so neither the regular MacBook nor the Air will suit my needs, as they don't have graphics cards.) I know that trying top predict Apple's release schedules accurately is a fool's game, but I'm hoping there are some folks here with a finger more firmly on the pulse than my own.
