Did some more thinking and research and after contemplating quite a bit, we went with no, I don't believe that we'll be replacing it. We'll probably be house shopping within a year or so and decided that with some decent prep and a fresh coat of paint, we'd be better off saving the money that we would have spent on installing new siding.

Now, another question on prepping for the new coat of paint. There are NUMEROUS coats of paint on the house. Some of it on the back (south) side of the home is chipping all the way down to the wood. It will obviously leave voids that, if painted over, will still be visible and look like crap. Is there some type of filler (think spackle or bondo) that you can purchase to put a little skim coat in those areas to help provide a flat surface to paint over? If so, details please.
