The main issue I have with this is that "checkpoint" is not a verb. (I
know, neither are 'changelist' or 'auth').

How about 'save' (to create a savepoint) and 'restore' instead?

As to why I'm nitpicking at this point: whatever we choose will be
pretty much set in stone, in the UI and the API, for the conceivable future.
