Rebuy tourneys can get crazy and you'll want to have someone not playing who will be handing out the rebuy chips and collecting the $$. Also remember that your tourney will generally last longer because there will be a lot more chips on the table during the latter stages so the pressure to play won't be as great.
I generally do the first hour which is 3-4 levels depending on 15/20 minute blinds. However, I've never known the best way to handle rebuys. Obvously if someone is busted they can rebuy. We start with $2K in chips, so the question comes in when someone has say $100 +/-$50, that's pretty short and they typically ask to rebuy. I was just trying to think of a rule I could put in place so everyone is on the same page.
