Seems like this already exists with qrunner. [knowing nothing about the
internals..] If a message is 'scehduled' toss it into a different dierctory.
At the same time, drop in a small file containing the time to send (a
separate file should be lower overhead to open, and should have very
little data.) 

Periodically check all these time-to-send files. Ought to be fairly trivial 
to impliment the sending portion. Don't know about the web pages, though.
