I'm only slightly biased, but...

Having implemented IS-IS; having listened to a certain former IS-IS
implementor gripe greviously about the fun he was having implementing OSPF;
having watched both successful and unsuccesful OSPF implementations;
knowing what I know about both protocols, and given Murphy's tendency to
veer towards complexity, my decision would take less time than an SPF.  ;-)
