I do, pretty regularly. I do it with my own server just to test out 
connections and make sure lag to my server isn't with my client or 
what-not, and also just to play around and make sure things work the way 
I expect them to.

I second Matthias Wimmer's -1 to binary wire protocol. I know it would 
make things increadibly easy for the server and programs, but difficult 
for developers and admins.
