However, do be very careful about it - it's very, very difficult
to break out of it.

You'll need to phrase it along the lines of
"OK, we charge $x for this, but for you, a special deal
of $y"

So when you see your *next* client (or this one refers you
on), you don't get stuck in only being able to command $y
because that's what the previous job was.
