Use of Resource Object in Processes?

Hi all,  We currently have a requirement to have an automated process that allocates all new resources to a set of generic codes (holiday, sick, etc.) We already have an external automated process to insert new users into Clarity using XOG but we've not tackled the issue of auto-allocation before. We have come up with a number of solutions such as modifying the existing interface (although this is a mature piece of code we're loathe to change unless absolutely necessary) and creating a new external script to grab resources out via XOG, modify the XML, and then XOG back in. The most succinct solution would be to use the built-in process engine but there doesn't seem to be a Resource object to select for processes. Is this right or have we missed something? Has anyone else done automated allocation of resources to projects/tasks?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Regards,Richard.
