Can i process Ilford HP5 / FP4 with C41 chemicals, if so what kind of 'look' will the photos get?

When c41 came out I was told this was a no-no; the temp might be too high; and gunk up the C41 processor; ie emulsion mess. Maybe others can explain if this works.

The blix will convert all of the silver into a halide again, and the fixer will remove this.Results will be a blank strip of film

This may work only if you skip the bleach fix step and fix it in normal B&W fixer. But normally it wipes the neg blank with the bleach fix.
