Ok everyone, I'm sold. I think I actually feel comfortable enough to go ahead and make the contribution.

One last question though (I promise this time). If it turns out that next year come tax time I have to withdraw the contribution and its earnings, how is it possible to determine which earnings were from the $2000 contribution this year as opposed to earnings from contributions from previous years?

I realize and agree that the likelyhood of having to withdraw the contribution is minimal. I'm still curious to know how that would work though.

Thanks again for all the help everyone.
