What it means is that if you override the weigh_objects() method of the BaseWeigher class, you can make a single call to Cyborg with a list of all the hosts. That call could then create a list of weights for all the hosts and return that. So if you have 100 hosts, you don’t need to make 100 calls to Cyborg; only 1.
