I have in the past, actually starting with E-2 way back in the dark ages. 
Yes, I'm older than dirt.  If you can maintain a water bath temperature
within plus/minus one degree, the rest is not all that difficult.  I found
that cutting the frames apart and putting them in mounts was much more of a
PITA than the actual processing.

BUT, unless things have changed in the last few years, the chemicals, once
mixed, don't keep all that long.  If, like Mike Veglia, you shoot a lot of
film at a time, that's not a problem.  I don't normally shoot that much,
usually just a roll every week or so, unless something special comes up,
and in order not to waste the chemicals, I would need to refrigerate the
film I've shot until I have enough stored up to make full use of the soup. 
That's even worse than waiting a week to 10 days for it to come back from
A&I.  If not for that, I'd probably start developing my own stuff again. 
It's actually kind of fun.  Of course, instant gratification usually is.
