it can be done no matter the weight of the resources involved if the
resource handling (allocation/release) is, as you indicate, completely
decoupled from the realtime thread.

admittedly, the approach is tough to implement -- i'm doing it in
a one-process context, and it works; but within the multi-process
context that is jack i can understand your reluctance to do it.
