git-remote-mediawiki: bugfix for pages w/ >500 revisions
Mediawiki introduces a new API for queries w/ more than 500 results in version 1.21. That change triggered an infinite loop while cloning a mediawiki with such a page. The latest API renamed and moved the "continuing" information in the response, necessary to build the next query. The code failed to retrieve that information but still detected that it was in a "continuing query". As a result, it launched the same query over and over again. If a "continuing" information is detected in the response (old or new), the next query is updated accordingly. If not, we quit assuming it's not a continuing query.
