Forgot to answer this part - it was broken up purely for conceptual
cleanness. I'd probably leave the independent APIs but introduce a new
do-everything-at-once API.

There are actually good reasons to combine them anyway when you're
looking at a load-balanced setup (skew between servers may cause some
calls to fail - e.g. I get an STH from one server, then try to get
audit against that STH from another that is slightly behind, which
will fail).
