digitalmars.D - Remove docs on 'new' and 'delete'?

Someone on IRC just pointed out that the docs for new and delete are 
still present: http://dlang.org/memory.html#newdelete

Considering how often this particular section misleads people, and that 
we're going to deprecate new/delete overloading anyway, wouldn't it be a 
good idea to get rid of that section ASAP?

I have a local branch rewriting the memory page to compose with emplace()/clear() instead; I had a pull request up for a while, but I closed it because clear() isn't documented yet. I don't think we should remove that section until its alternative is fully ready. (My branch also has some other fixes for that page, maybe I should send a pull request for those changes separately...)

I've made a note about delete being deprecated in the classes page: https://github.com/D-Programming-Language/d-programming-language.org/pull/112 I think you could make your pull request for the memory page to close the circle. :)
