Check usage and version matrix.

The REST API's imageinfo query has similar properties; probably wise to match at least some of them:

 iiprop              - What image information to get:
                        timestamp     - Adds timestamp for the uploaded version

                        userid        - Add the user ID that uploaded the image version

                        parsedcomment - Parse the comment on the version
                        url           - Gives URL to the image and the description page
                        size          - Adds the size of the image in bytes and the height, width and page count (if applicable)
