[Scons-dev] SCons with shared resource

I am successfully using scons for batch processing of simulation work.

Unfortunately some of the tasks share resources that prevent them being executed in parallel.
Other tasks are can be run in parallel.

This means that I need to run scons in single processor mode, meaning some tasks are unnecessarily serialised.

I am considering modifying the scons code to allow specification of a shared resource/ mutex for certain tasks.

Does anyone have any advise as to how this is best implemented ?
