Not I. The closest I've been is to work on a commercial desktop program that keeps companies' escrow accounts balanced. If their escrow accounts can't balance, someone is going to jail. The risk is not even close to the same level as your project, but some people act as if it was.

I tell all the new devs that work on the escrow account code, "If the money isn't right, then you don't have a job - no excuses."
