Shipping Insurance

I was wondering if someone knew of a way to easily add an insurance table to shipping rates?

What I need is to be able to provide insurance rates for a range of shipping rates, like for example, USPS has this insurance rate table:

Fee . . . . . . . . . . Insurance Coverage
$1.70 ................ $0.01 to $50
$2.15 ................ $50.01 to $100
$2.60 ................ $100.01 to $200
$4.60 ................ $200.01 to $300
$5.55 ................ $300.01 to $400
$6.50 ................ $400.01 to $500
$7.45 ................ $500.01 to $600
$7.45 plus $0.95 per $100 or fraction thereof over $600 to $5,000.

I need to be able to do something like this for both UPS and USPS. 

Maybe someone can provide me some starter code to modify the existing shipping modules.  Or at least point me to some files where I need to look.  I’ve looked in app\code\core\Mage\Shipping but I’m not quite sure where to go from there or if it is somewhere else.  I’m sure other people need a similar functionality for other shipping modules as well.

So anyone have any ideas?
