from the Postgres Architectural Concepts document:

"The libpq library allows a single frontend to make multiple connections
to backend processes. 
However, the frontend application is still a single-threaded process."

could some clarify to me if this means that a frontend CANNOT open
connections from different threads with the current implementation of

if so then what does it mean "to make multiple connections" ? does this 
apply only to multiple processes  ? or from the same process but not at
the same time ?

Is there anyone working on multi threading for libpq ?
