Basically I see three ways how to achieve this:

1) Remove the "load once" restriction so that you can use one instance
     for corking and another for ducking (I'll test this later today)
2) Add additional parameters "duck_trigger_roles" and "duck_roles"
3) Keep two separate modules

What would you prefer?
