anybody weld 416r stainless steel?

I have a customer who wants an assembly made from 416r welded.
Everything I can find says not to weld it. Has anybody here done it?
and with good results? The part will be heat treated after welding.

416R is not generally recommended for welding as porosity results where sulfur (or selenium) is introduced

416R ?
What is it about that alloy that is so necessary. Why not a 17-4 PH or a 430, which are weldable?
