This would equate to the same concept as fax-batching (sending multiple fax
jobs per one call, including sending fax jobs queued after the call began).
 Currently HylaFAX does not support fax-batching, and so I doubt that
page-batching is supported, either.

The problem is that in order to do that right, the sending routines need to
be multi-threaded, and HylaFAX isn't.  Although, I can think of ways to do
this without multi-threading, but definately, it's an inferior design.

Multi-threading HylaFAX would help out in a number of other places - 
so if you feel up to it ;-)
