Can't you do that today with a multi-command string submitted to
PQsendQuery, followed by multiple calls to PQgetResult?

I'm hesitant to think about supporting the case more thoroughly than
that, or with any different semantics than that, because I think that
the error-case behavior will be entirely unintelligible/unmaintainable
unless you abandon all queries-in-flight in toto when an error happens.
Furthermore, in most apps it'd be a serious PITA to keep track of which
reply is for which query, so I doubt that such a feature is of general
