You may bill the client as FP, but internally, the project is tracking  

FP has the joy of having internal variable costs, but external fixed  
ones; that gives you (or whoever owns the project finances) all the  
financial risk.

It also gives you the financial opportunity - if you can produce the

people) then you've the potential for up-side.
