As soon as I hit reply I thought of this....

You could setup an optioned item with two options...

1) Single item with single price
2) Case of item with case price. (for example, 6 per case)

Then, if the customer wants to order, for example 8 items, then they
would have to order two line items.  One line would be the case (qty 1)
and the second would be the single item (qty 2).  Then, the cart looks
clean, the customer sees the case at one price and the singles at
another price. 

You can, of course, automate this with some code so that if a customer
orders 8 items (as single) it automatically generates two line items (as
above) and save the customer from having to click twice.  But that would
be a custom hack.
