I hesitate to ask this, knowing how the IRS thinks, but what about earnings/gains in a mixed conversion/contribution account? If you converted, e.g., $2,000, and contributed $2,000, and found the account to be worth $8,000 one year later, how much could you withdraw without penalty? What if the two components and their gains could be specifically identified?
