Can nmap detect port-sharing?

http://www.linuxquestions.org – Hello all, Since I no longer have access to a spare machine to actually test this out on, I was hoping some kind soul might know the answer, or be willing to try it out for me. I'm trying to find out if the port scanner nmap can detect two different services which are sharing a single port. For instance, if I'd managed to set up, I dunno, a web server and an ftp server to both run over the same port, would nmap with version detection be able to detect both of them, or just one? Thanks in advance! (HowTos)
