This was discussed before. At that time Lex was agains global resource
mapping and wanted per-sci resource allocation instead. I will only
repeat my suggestions:

1. Check how many resources we are using. If they are below the global
limit or slighly above it, per-sci makes no sense.

2. If they are above the limit, check how much per-sci will improve
the things. If it's less than, say, 15%, per-sci makes no sense.

3. If per-sci still seems reasonable, provide some logical to physical
mapping, so that the plugins woudn't need to remember each allocated
resource separately for each sci.
