We had ALL of these, actually, and I still would never choose to
self-develop again.  (We're not even done yet, and we're a full year
behind schedule). I don't recommend self-development at all. We didn't
think there was enough money in this project to pay a developer's fee, but
we've spent all that and more on mistakes and now on a paid project
manager. Our prices are some 20% higher than we originally thought they'd
be, and us old-timers are plumb wore-out.
