Ok, on the SL machine with my App Store account with which I bought Xcode 4.0 back then on SL:

In the purchased list I see two Xcode apps to install:
- Xcode (which is the one you can find in the store through searching and which will not even download on SL because it is for Lion only)
- Xcode for Snow Leopard

Clicking on the icon for Xcode for snow Leopard will produce an error that the App Store can't finish the request (since there is no actual application page for that).
Clicking on install will download it correctly and looking at the content it is indeed Xcode 4.2, so it is safe to assume that whoever purchased Xcode 4.0 will always be up to date with the Xcode 4.x that Apple offers in the developer members area.
However I did *not* install it since I want to keep that SL machine in a default user condition without any developer stuff so I can be assured that apps built on my development machine do actually run on a default machine :)
