As they're currently written, no, they can't use each others' code.  The
addition of some optional functions might make it possible for them to do
so... though it has been stated that one of the goals for Apache 2.1 or
3.0 is to redo the auth/access modules so that they are more modularized
in this way, so I don't know how much effort it's worth putting into it at
this point.
