Well, the binaries are shared, just as any program is on Unix.  If
fifteen people are all running emacs, they all share the same code
segment for the emacs program.  Same for Hurd servers.

If two ext2fs servers are running using the *same* disk partition,
then they do nothing special to cooperate, and will mangle each
other's work horribly.
