Two parts to this probably.
1) It should definitely be possible to have parameters in tool configs
that are set in a global configuration file, I actually thought
tool_conf.xml might be a good place (inside the tool element).
2) For the particular case of processor cores, ideally we would be
able to have the batch management system set this information (if
running on an 8 core node, use 8).

Some of the provided Galaxy wrappers have a note in the XML
saying the number of threads should be configurable, perhaps
via a loc file. I have suggested to the Galaxy developers there
should be a general setting for number of threads per tool
accessible via the XML, so that this can be configured centrally
(maybe I should file an enhancement issue for this):
