I've done that once or twice. Way back in the DOS days, it was a very
powerful technique for working around some of the more crippling
limitations of the brain-damaged DOS batch language and interpreter.
I also wrote a CGI once that was implemented as a self-modifying Perl
script, just to see if it would work. (It did, but required extreme
care in input sanitization.)
