I don't think this is true.  Apt-get will use one "http" process per server
for parallel downloading, not one per package.

You can use the Acquire::Queue-Mode setting.  See the "apt.conf" man

Since we have so many repositories and since that seems to cause some
problems, we should probably use

    Acquire::Queue-Mode "access";

by default.
