[texhax] Complex rule for citations of papers with multiple authors.

The journal of which I am Technical Editor has the following rules about
citing papers with multiple authors:
(1) For one author use the form "Green (1999)".
(2) For two authors use the form "Black & Tan (1993)"
(3) For three authors, use all names "Red, White & Blue (2001)" the
first time, and then "Red et al. (2001)" subsequently.
(4) For four or more authors, always use the form "Gray et al. (2007)".
I would like to have a bibliography style that effected these rules
automagically. Is this possible? Is there a way in which I could
modify the Journal's current bibliography style file ("anzsj.bst") to
get it to effect these rules?
I have the feeling that (1), (2) and (4) should be straightforward, but
(3) could be tricky.
I would be grateful for any hints.
