This is a good idea. I did this once in a class, though we didn't go out
and find real-life clients but used each other as clients. The teacher
picked someone for us to be both client and customer at the same time. I
found out what my client wanted and tried to fulfill it and at the same
time another classmate came to me and I made specifications for that
person.

We got to see both side simultaneously. It wasn't a group project really
because we were working one-on-one _and_ were doing all the actual work
ourselves. It was a really good experience.
