I did. Or, rather, tried.
Couldn't get it past 3-4 layers, it kept getting stuck in either the extruder or the hot-end.

It's too bendy.

I'm sure it's just a matter of nailing the right temperature, extrusion speed and tension, but i simply didn't have enough free time to figure it out. Got a full roll of it, waiting for when i catch some free time from work.

It's pretty nifty. It sticks to glass like crazy, without any kind of help.
And it lifts off from it like unsticking bubblegum from a pane of glass (it doesn't leave strands, but it... stretches free off the glass, not sure how else to explain it).
