Is it possible within the httpd.conf file to have multiple <Directory> tags referencing the same directory path?

<Directory /path/a/>
#set of directives…
</Directory>



<Directory /path/a/>
#another set of directives…
</Directory>


Will these 2 directory tags combine with each other such that the directives in each get applied, or do they conflict leaving the 2nd set of directives to override the first?
