So, true, it is cheaper to go the SL > Lion route but the straight to Lion route isn't all that much more expensive. That's not to mention that you save time while getting a "hard" copy of the OS.
Another thing to keep in mind is that while you can do an in-place upgrade from Leopard to SL to Lion, you might not be able to do the same going from Leopard to Lion.
