Another option is to convert the resource files to data fork
resources which can be done with the tools inside /Developer/Tools
(Rez, ResMerger). That is certainly simpler than switching off of
Resources entirely. We did that at work years ago when X was first
becoming important. All the tools can deal with data fork resources
so this shouldn't break anything.
