Yeah, I've done something along this line but I haven't seen what
Magento has to offer.  The basic Idea of what I have done is to
implement some basic discount rules and have a usertag that determines
what discounts apply to a particular item, then outputs a CommonAdjust
atom which will adjust the output price accordingly.  There is also
other "majic" scattered about here and there to help with displaying the
discounts better, and also a system whereby a discount code can be
entered and applied at checkout time.

All in all it's not a single solution but a few different solutions that
work pretty well together, and is fairly customized to the site of this
particular client, but if you want something similar then that is
certainly doable.
