It makes no distinction between non-Python module files and anything 
else. It allocates the same number of files to each .qrc file but 
doesn't take the size of a file into account. If you have lots of large 
data files in the same directory it is likely that these will be lumped 
together. The only work around I can suggest is to set the number of 
resource file to a higher value.
