Roth conversion

i completed a roth conversion earlier this year, and expecting tax rates to increase next year had planned to pay the tax in this year.

now that current tax rates have been extended for two years, it would seem reasonable to take advantage of the ability to spread that income over 2011 and 2012. BUT, i worry that there might well be some revenue "enhancements" which would result in increased tax; and the interest i might earn by delaying payment will surely be nothing to crow about.

(all else seems to be about the same from 2010 through 2012, at least a far as i can see, so i don't think anything else enters into this)

any helpful thoughts on this issue? i'd greatly appreciate your input.
