[ic] Cascading Shipping Costs

I'm running a patched-every-which-way version 5.2 IC install.
Is there anyway to cascade shipping costs?
Here is a basic scenario of what I'm trying to accomplish:
Customer purchases 1 item weighing 2 pounds. Chooses to ship via DHL to
India (made up scenario).
1) What does India require us to pay in hazmat fees?
2) What does DHL charge for shipping 2 pounds of material?
3) What does DHL charge for the size of box we need to ship the item
Can shipping.asc accomplish this?
Here is what I started to build:
DHL: Standard Shipping
DHL2: Standard Shipping
cost e Nothing to ship!
DHL3: Standard Shipping
cost e Does not fit in any box
So what I see as happening is this:
1) Checks hazmat (lets say India requires hazmat), criteria
returns 1, shipping cost is $2.99
2) Checks weight, within 1-5 range, shipping cost is now $7.98
(hazmat cost + weight cost)
3) Checks box size, criteria returns 1, shipping cost is now
$8.48 (hazmat cost + weight cost + box cost)
Now, I know this doesn't work. The "next" field doesn't work unless the
criteria returned a zero.
I see reference to "adder", but I can find no documentation for it and
every time I see it, it is in context with UPS shipping methods.
Is there any way to accomplish this set of tasks using a different set
of shipping rules? Am I completely glossing over something obvious? Or
do I need to roll my own shipping functions?
Hopefully I was able to convey what I am trying to do.
Thanks in advance for any help!
