    1 Execute a set of one or more procedure calls on the server as a single
    2 request. The only supported call signature takes an ARRAY of STRUCT values.
    3 Each STRUCT should have two members:
    4 
    5     methodName         The name of the method/routine to invoke as a STRING
    6     params             An ARRAY of the parameters to pass to the routine
    7 
    8 If the "params" member is absent, a call with no parameters is assumed. The
    9 ARRAY of parameters will be expanded prior to the call, otherwise all the
   10 called routines would have to have a signature allowing for a single ARRAY
   11 input. Thus, any routine taking such an input will have to nest it within an
   12 outer containing ARRAY.
   13 
   14 The return value is an ARRAY of the return values from the calls, or a fault
   15 response if one of the calls failed. Because the specification does not allow
   16 for faults as first-class datatypes, all other results are discarded upon an
   17 error, and any remaining calls will not get executed.
