1995 StumpJumper M2 rebuild or not?

I have a 1995 Specialized StumpJumper M2. It's been around a while and has a lot of miles on it.

I was planning on replacing it by building-up a bike, possibly with a Salsa Ala Carte, Rocky Mountain Blizzard or Yeti ARC frame. Each of those frames is pretty expensive, so I was considering my other options, like rebuilding my old M2 frame. I mean, the frame is in good shape (no dings, dent's or cracks), the bike has always fit me well and it would save up to $1000.

I'm worried about the frame. Does anyone have any expirience or advice in rebuilding older aluminum framed bikes? How much of a concern is metal fatigue?
