Even if such a query would require more overhead, it would almost certainly be less than the current overhead of establishing multiple connections, multiple independent database queries, multiple results sent back to the client, etc.

A simple space would be used to separate the package names, e.g.
...?method=info&arg=this that
equivalent to
