That's one reason we almost *never* do fixed-fee jobs--and I think
it's very hard to determine beforehand who will ask a million
questions and who won't. The other reason we don't do fixed-fee is
that scope always creeps and if you go back and ask for another $100
every day for this and that, you could end up looking like the creep.
