Running multiple instances on the same configuration is supported. When
state in the configuration directory is changed, a new file is written
rather than modifying the old one (such as .state.1, .state.2, etc).
This allows other instances to continue operating against the older
state files while an instance is updating configuration state. So, it
should work. If you encounter problems when running multiple instances
on the same configuration, a bug report should be entered.
Note: it is possible for an arbitrary plugin to call
Platform.getConfigurationLocation and start blindly writing files there.
If the plugin did not use mechanisms to protect against concurrent
writes, that plugin would break when running multiple instances
concurrently, but it should not affect the platform itself.
