That is correct, except if one of them is a Superserver. Superserver needs
exclusive access, Classic and SuperClassic don't.

Before Firebird 2.5, the embedded server had a Superserver architecture so
it too needed exclusive access. In Firebird 2.5, the embedded server has a
SuperClassic architecture, so it can share access with other servers.
