Default Fast chargers

With Nimh capacities going up (2100ma) I've concluded that cam owners need the following:

Fast re-charge less than 3 hours.
Able to take batteries in units of 4 -preferably 8 or 12 bay.
Automatic discharge to zero facility before re-charge.
Very intelligent charge controller (faster re-charge means more careful battery monitoring)
Charge sensing for each individual battery (temperature and voltage), to allow mixed capacity or 'top up' re-charging.

Is anybody using a charger with this sort of spec, or built one using the latest charge control IC's?
