Linear has a few specialized chips that seem to do the job much nicer than anything that I was thinking about:

LTC6802-2 - Multicell Addressable Battery Stack Monitor - Linear Technology
Less than $15 each. Not sure how close they are to end-of-life though.

LTC6803-2 and -4 - Multicell Battery Stack Monitor - Linear Technology
This one looks newer and is $16 each.
