Original bug title:
Make limited information from filearchive available to everyone

Reasoning:
When it comes to identifying copyright violations and [[WP:Sock puppetry]], it
is essentially helpful if you can check whether a file has been previously
uploaded without uploading the file into the stash yourself.

Demand:
title and size, filterable by sha1
( fasha1=HEXHASH&faprop=title|size )

What about privacy?
Not an issue. If you upload to a file to the stash, you are able to obtain this
information anyway.
