Since the API uses pagination, this has the minor downside of making it
harder to use the uscan --download-version option with older versions.

The GitHub pages are also paginated, so you get the same issue whether using the API or not.

I have been hit by this on cases where upstream does enough beta|rc|snapshots releases such that the latest GA release gets in the second page and uscan fails due to not finding it.
