Just ordered a Canon HF100 and need a SDHC card(s) for it. They recommend class 4 or faster, but I'm wondering if class 4 will be fast enough? Sandisk class 4's show a record speed of 20 mb/s and the camera records at about 17 mb/s (from what I read). So would the class 4 be enough? Or should I spend the extra and go with class 6?

Go with class 6. While the speed increase may not be needed for camera to card it will be worth it for card to computer.

Agreed definately go with Class 6. You may not need it for the camera but you never know if you may purchase something else down the road that will require it. Its worth the $10-20 extra bucks.
