Congrats on your new tarp! ...and you won't need line tensioners. Cuben won't "sag" like silnyl does.
Good for you. I am also very jealous.
I own the best of both worlds, a Superfly and a Cuben Tarp. Prefer the Cuben.
It depends in part on what the rest of your gear is like. Are there any parts of your hammock setup that would also benefit from an upgrade? If so, prioritize. Spend your money on what provides the most comfort, either on the trail or in camp.
Hmm.. the light issue is something I didn't consider. My first cuben tarp is just about to be delivered. I camp mostly back home in Sweden, where in the summer it gets dark around midnight and light again at 2.30... in the south... and I really, really, really like to sleep in...
