AIUI, apt-get already supports concurrent requests, but only to
diffferent servers at once. From my understanding of the code, queueing
in a way to handle multiple concurrent requests to the same server has
some internal API but isn't implemented.

I believe that S3 is higher latency than normal as a consequence of its
higher resiliency, and that you're "supposed" to use parallelism to
improve performance.

I do hope to enhance apt-get, but it's quite involved so haven't found
enough time for it yet.
