Mechanics behind both is the same - gyros and micro-motors, issue is move lens or ccd to capture movement - me thinks no difference here in terms of performance as requirement would be identical.
anti shake quality is very subjective (amount/type of blur) so its very hard to come to conclusion.Also anti-shake is still not very predictable and overcompensation when the camera is totally still exists.

Check dpreview for test of A1's IS. Gives you 2 - 3 stops slower shutter speed.

Then again it might go down to a something like a "digital vs film" war with no clear winners except customer preference.
