Default Bottling with Brett

I'm sure this is buried in at least one thread on this board but I couldn't find anything. I've read a bit about beers that are bottle conditioned with brett (Biere de Mars for example). Is this practical for a homebrewer? Won't the brett eat through residual sugars as well as the priming sugar and create bottle bombs? Or do you not need to add priming sugar if you add brett at bottling?

Anyone tried this out?

I'm planning on trying this with one of my next beers, I was planning on using some priming sugar but now you have me thinking...

I've done some work with Brett L, and I think the safer bet would be to pitch the Brett into the secondary, wait to let it drop the FG (although it doesn't seem to attenuate that severely without other bugs, there are alot of threads on this) for a few weeks, months, whatever, then prime and bottle like normal. There isn't (to my knowledge) a way to judge how much residual sugar they will eat. Just my .02
