service group concurrency limit?

I'm wondering if there is any way to limit the number of services that can be 
checked at one time based on service group.  I have some service checks that 
use a limited pool of resources (smaller than the number of services to check) 
and many others that have no such limitation.  So I need to set 
max_concurrent_checks in nagios.cfg to limit the number of concurrent checks. 
  Unfortunately, this is a global limit.  It would be nice if this sort of 
limit could be applied to a service group so the plugins don't have to manage 

Any ideas?   Thanks,

Paul Dubuc
