Ops. Sorry: I submitted with a wrong topic, it was "SOAP".
Anyway I found myself the answer:
It means to send multiple requests at once.
It involves in packing multiple asynchronous function calls in one big request. Then send them all at once.
HTTP is a slow protocol, so it can be much faster to make one big request than multiple little ones. And also, some people would like to use something XML-RPC to script local applications. This would be very slow without boxcarring.
