Attached are two patches:

* Update PEP 4 about 'new' module which is deprecated since python 2.6
in favour of using types module.

* Update documentation for 'new' module.

Not sure about the exact date of proposal for deprecating 'new' module,
but closest that I was able to find was this python-dev mail thread
after it had been removed from py3k branch:

Applied the doc patch in r68121.  Updated PEP 4 to point to PEP 3108
(which contains a list of all modules removed in 3k and deprecated in
2.6, not just "new") in r68122.
