Roth TSP?

For those of us youngins that favor and can contribute to the Roth. With the passing of the Roth 401(k), does anoyne think the TSP may give us a Roth option in the future?

The TSP website says "no".

Judging from the pace of the military TSP's implementation so far, I think that the TSP board feels that they've moved at warp speed to raise the contribution limits and to introduce the Lifecycle fund.

They're just getting around to proposing a REIT fund, they're barely even ready to tackle the contributions of bonus/specialty pays, and I'd say that the Roth 401(k) legislation will expire before the TSP gets around to reconsidering.
