The limit is 1 kB per get, so you'll only get one value at a time.  If
that's too slow, the trick is to parallelize things by not storing all
your values under the same key.  Check the list archives for this
month; look for references to FileShare.

A version 2 put is just a version 3 put with no secret hash, so you
can't remove it, but it's otherwise indistinguishable from a version 3
