Wow..  We utilize ResourceBundleControlProvider SPI and our software 
heavily depends on it [https://github.com/IBM-Bluemix/gp-java-client]. 
This is only the way to inject custom resource loading logic without 
affecting existing code.

Is there any alternative solution allowing us to customize resource 
loading logic without rewriting ResourceBundle consumer code?
