A friend of mine just put some Cane Creeks on his singlespeed. They look pretty cool, one of their calipers is longer and bent, so you eliminate the need for a "Noodle". They weren't ridiculously expensive either.
Otherwise, I'd recommend Avid Single Digits for vee-brakes. I actually prefer their lever than any of the Shimano levers.
I agree with everyone else as well if going with Discs. I'm running Hayes Hydros and am very happy with them.
BTW, if upgrading to discs, not only do you also need disc hubs, but you've got to make sure that disc tabs are welded to your frame and fork. If not, then you've got to use an adapter for the frame, and a new fork (Adapters for forks don't work!). This is usually too costly, and it'd be cheaper to buy a complete bike with discs already on it!
