Nope - they are processed sequentially - each batch will open a 
connection for the first message, wait for the response, close the 
connection, open the connection for the second message etc

Once each message is finished there is a short delay whilst the server 
thread shuts down (updating bayes etc) before it can be used again. So 
it is possible for more than one child to be open per MS Child.
