If you can tell a checkup from a full request, you can answer checkups
and ignore requests. Allowing either means that there will be people in
each of four categories:
Verifies fragments by asking for all fragments which match a PK
and gets whole files in the same way. (1)
and gets whole files by asking for individual frags by ID. (2)
Verifies fragments by asking for a fragment which matches a PK and has a specific ID
and gets whole files in the same way (3)
and gets whole files by asking for all frags which match a PK (4)
(4) is the most efficient, and the only reason I can think of to use
(2) is to play with people's heads, but all four are certanily viable
