Yes. You can just install the TeX Live 2003 version again. On first 
install of a TeX Live 2004, your texmf.local tree will be adapted, but 
in such a way that it still works with TeX Live 2003.

I would not recommend going back to a previous i-Package version you 
have lying around. It has the same programs and foundation but might 
not be able to handle the texmf.local change. Also, the TL2003 based 
release has some fixes (listings) and additions (beamer for instance). 
But selecting TL2003 on the new i-Package install should work fine.

I have done various back and forward tests. Of course it is not certain 
that all problems have been caught, but I know of none. And if they 
would appear, I could of course try to fix things, that is how this 
process works too.
