you're asking about tax law... that's one law i don't guess on... i've 
done what you're describing before, but ultimately whatever i did is 
irrelevent because i guarantee our situations are wildly different...

in short, talk to an accountant... don't underestimate the hassles 
with guessing on this stuff down the road...
