I would like to add my voice to your question!
Many people currently have a loss right now. Can this "magic wand" that resets the cost basis generat a loss as well as a gain?

Also I am assuming that we don't have to make up our minds about doing this until we file our 2001 tax return. Here hindsight can be great!
