I'd say this is outside the scope of add_query_params().

As for the duplicate handling, I've implemented a threefold strategy that
should address all use cases raised before:

 def add_query_params(*args, **kwargs):
    add_query_parms(url, [allow_dups, [args_dict, [separator]]], **kwargs)

    Appends query parameters to an URL and returns the result.

    :param url: the URL to update, a string.
    :param allow_dups: if
        * True: plainly append new parameters, allowing all duplicates
        * False: disallow duplicates in values and regroup keys so that
          different values for the same key are adjacent,
        * None: disallow duplicates in keys -- each key can have a single
          value and later values override the value (like dict.update()).
    :param args_dict: optional dictionary of parameters, default is {}.
    :param separator: either ';' or '&', the separator between key-value
        pairs, default is '&'.
    :param kwargs: parameters as keyword arguments.

    :return: original URL with updated query parameters or the original URL
        unchanged if no parameters given.

extensive description of the behaviour is in the doctests.
