I would (and have) roll the funds over into a rollover IRA - and keep that account distinct from your other IRA accounts. At some future time, if you find a good reason to roll it into your new 401(k), you can do so, so long as you didn't mix other IRA funds with the rollover.

Meanwhile, you most likely benefit from a greater selection of investments and lower fees.
