don't freak out on deprecation warnings

The upload API call can sometimes return warnings based on the `watch`
parameter, which has been deprecated in favor of `watchlist`.  When it
does, it returns two XML nodes named `<upload>`, and
`check-api-response` was only looking at the first one.

On my mediawiki (1.19.1), the XML comes back like:


We care about the data in the second `<upload>` node.  This patch says
if there are two `<upload>` nodes found, use the second one.

I'm not sure what's the right thing to do here; I could amend
cl-mediawiki to follow the mediawiki API, remove `:watch` and add
`:watchlist`, but that drops support for older mediawiki versions, and
it seems constraining to limit cl-mediawiki to recent mediawiki
versions only.
