I like the idea of not passing a nif resource like ets does (ie passing a ref or a name). A idea on how this could be done in an efficient manner? 

I actually think to use an rw lock and a simple map in the private resource for it. But unsure what I should return on creation. Do we have to return the resource erlang term to keep it associated to the process? or simply creating it in the process will be enough?
