Is there a way of not fetching old images, and only fetching current images? We only want the images that would be displayed on the page.
So, why would we should a deleted file in our imageinfo request? It seems wrong to me to return a response that includes a deleted file.
We simply copy/pasted links from Wikipedia and used the URLs directly for our data when we made the request. It seemed a bit awkward for the API not to give us back already-encoded proper URL fragments, but we'll fix that up in our code.
Also, even when we pass a continue parameter, we don't get thumbnail information. I take it it's because of the ~*~ completely undocumented ~*~ "filehidden" response field.
Another issue here -- we're not sure how to interpret the iicontinue parameter when it contains Unicode. Should we encode to UTF-8 and then percent-encode?

It's so broken (continuation not described anywhere as far as I can tell, limits poorly described in weird ways, important key concepts put into Examples sections), I wouldn't even know where to begin.

Is this documented anywhere? The API seems difficult and unintuitive to work with, and even the MediaWiki-General IRC channel thought these were bugs.
