I have done this numerous times with good results, hell, great results. I a quest to make the clearest beer, a lot of people look down on the cask conditioning, but only the first one or two beers are a little cloudy. Once you empty the keg, you can look inside, and see that the first couple beers cleaned an area of a half dollar away from the dip tube, and the rest of the yeast bed is there and intact. If you started brewing because you liked import beers, and like variety(like I did) cask conditioning is right for you. Most imports I like have a yeast bed in the bottle, so why not in the keg.
You will need to purchase a CO2 tank or one of the CO2 cartridge injectors to keep the pressure up for dispensing. You don't want to use one of the hand pumps as this will introduce anything in the outside air (including oxygen) into the tank, spoiling your beer. As long as it's under CO2 it'll keep for quite a while.
