This method behaves like setParameters() before version 2.3:
It will add new parameters to the collection, and override any existing positions/names.
It can take a Doctrine\Common\Collections\ArrayCollection with Doctrine\ORM\Query\Parameter objects, as well as a plain array with key/value pairs, as argument.
This will greatly ease the upgrade to Doctrine 2.3, because you only need to perform a project-wide replace of setParameters with addParameters, in stead of going into your code and determine if calls to setParameters are ok or need refactoring.
I've also added unit-tests to maintain integrity.

I don't feel strong need to have such an API.
If you want to keep track and merge collection of parameters, all you have to do is create an array (or an ArrayCollection), manipulate the instance and then setParameters at the end.
Unless you give me a stronger argument, this code won't be in. Closing for now.
I agree that such a method makes less sense in Query, because when you write a DQL string all parameters are known at once. But when using the QueryBuilder you might need different parameters in different cases, so addParameters() becomes useful there.
I guess it's just a convenience method, like IMHO setParameter() is. (You could just do $qb->getParameters()->add())
The main reason for adding the method was, like I said, upgrading to Doctrine 2.3. I've already upgraded all my projects to Doctrine 2.3, so the method is less useful for me now. But it took me a full day to refactor my repositories, because there is no safe way to automate the process. A simple search-and-replace setParameters() to addParameters() would have taken me 5 minutes ;)
I'm content with your decision.
If others find addParameters() useful, I hope they let us know.
