 * Adds the ability to request the checksums for more than one version from
 the API, so we can combine our HTTP requests
 * Renames the API endpoint to /checksums/, now that it does multiple
 versions at once
 * Some extra sanity checking on various lumps of data

 Currently, we're planning on restricting the API to returning data for a
 maximum of two versions, to prevent potential DDoS attacks. Is there any
 reason we would need to return more?
