Translators code duplicated? (weird question)

Under a traditional Unix system, if several devices are using the same driver
(ie. same major but different minor), the code for the driver is not duplicated
(well, it couldn't be duplicated anyway).

What happens exactly under the Hurd if you are running for instance several
ext2fs servers? Would the exec server for instance be able to recognize that
this server is already using and start running the second server without
duplicating the code (just allocating space for the data of the second server)?

I'm not sure my question is very relevant (sorry) but I think it makes sense to
worry about this kind of memory issue because one system would probably run
several identical system servers (but I think the answer is likely to be that it
doesn't matter whether this translator is already running...).
