That all depends on your source client capabilities and how well you 
could automate that task. I'd think ices2 would be a pretty good route 
as it is scriptable. You could just use different config files with the 
necessary configuration for each scenario.

You can temporarily move listeners from mountpoint to mountpoint within 
the admin interface, but that's a temporary thing afaik. Not sure if the 
API exposes any of that functionality, though this is veering off of 
your original goal I think.
