Nicely put, Darius. I've been approached with requests for 'discount for bulk' a few times - I can't think of any that fulfilled what was originally suggested and in all cases I insisted we start at the standard rate and see what the true workload was over time. I don't have much time for that sort of thing, but on the other hand I really enjoy one-offs that turn into long-term business relationships.
