There are actually tons of people that have had this experience. Threads like these crop up every cycle. Do a search and you'll get the arguments for or against.
Main thing it comes down to is it is overall better ot just make notes about yourself and what you want the professor to hit on, and get him to actually write it. It isn't good to have a PS and a LOR that have extremely similar writing styles.
