Moving after tax $ in 401A to Roth IRA?

I read in Mr. Slott's book that new tax laws in 2008 will allow for distributing after-tax money held in a 401A plan to a Roth IRA. Can anyone point me to information which would clarify this for me? TIA for any help or advise.

There have no Regs issued to more clearly define the direct rollover to a Roth IRA from a qualified plan. Here is the appropriate section of the PPA: http://fuguerre.googlepages.com/PPA.htm#ppa824
