You can't get much easier than files containing a list of the right 
delivery addresses for each time period and a cron job that copies the 
right file to the one :included: by a sendmail alias at each transition.
Did you try that approach yet?  But for ongoing things you lose the 
ability to easily see what the previous shift did unless they 
reply/forward a copy of anything still needing work.
