Just remember the conversion gets treated as part of your ordinary income for the year.

And to avoid an underpayment penalty because of the conversion, you should plan on meeting a safe harbor, or send in a quarterly estimate payments, with a plan to fill out Form 2210 to show that the payment was associated with the quarter the conversion occurred. (Hint - it's easier to meet a safe harbor.)
