I would probably go for 4...c5, hitting in the centre. Then 5.e3 cxd4 6.exd4 Bb4, for instance, transposes to a Panov-Botvinnik Attack where Bf4 feels a bit too early (at least, in fighting for an opening advantage).

  

All our dreams come true if we have the courage to pursue them.

20 years ago it was viewed thusly in NCO:  "4...Bb4 =".

In the sequence 1. d4 Nf6 2. c4 e6 3. Nc3 d5 4. Bf4, it appears possible to play the Nimzo/Ragozin idea of 4. .. Bb4. It's not terribly popular, but there doesn't seem anything wrong with it.
