You could simply adjust the crontab to relaunch appropriately on weekends.
There would be a little overlap (twice 15 is 30, not 24), but they would
each run with 50% CPU - no problem as long as they are niced
appropriately.  You could also install two copies - one configured for 15
hrs and another for 24hrs - just launch the 24hr version on Fri afternoon,
Sat afternoon, and on Sun launch the regular weekday version (which will
terminate Mon morning).

Good Luck!
