Temporary Accounts & Auto Expiry

We'ld like to setup some temporary accounts in Emerald that work as

The account expires X days after the first login OR
The account expires after X hours of use.

The second feature is time banking and last I heard there was some question
as to whether or not it worked. We'ld also like to keep the accounts as
one subaccount under one MBR; this is probably the most important for us
right now. We've been able to do so, with accounts that expire at the end
of the month, but what we'ld like to do is have it expire as one of the two
scenario's listed above.
Rather than keeping track of which accounts have been used and should then
be expired (ie the subaccount deleted) after thirty days, we're hoping
there's a way to implement something as listed above within Emerald or
maybe by running an external SQL statement\Report every so often (hmm,
still a tad manual ;) )

Has anyone done this\can this be done?

Thanks heaps in advance!
