Less work, more play

Has anyone working fulltime under a manager negotiated a cut in their work hours, from the standard 40-hr work week to 30-32 hours? (But not due to childcare or other specific family/personal constraints, just for wanting more free time.)

Looking to become time richer, money poorer. I'm a mechanical engineer at a fairly typical engineering company on salary, and wondering about the feasibility of this. Having a four-day work week, with commensurate pay, would appeal to me. Has anyone else done this? Anything I should worry about, possibly related to losing full-time benefits?
