No. Not for the C API, or for any API. The client-server protocol
requires that you issue a single query at at time.
But there's nothing to stop you from writing a utility function that
takes all the statements and issues them. Then you just call *that*
And remember that you don't include a terminating semicolon on the
statements when you use an API.
