[docs] [issue12672] Some problems in documentation extending/newtypes.html

New submission from Eli Bendersky <eliben at gmail.com>:

Reading the C API documentation: extending/newtypes.html

Some problems:

1. In the first paragraph of 2.1 - "to distinguish them from things like [].append", it's unclear what [].append is. Maybe "[] and append"?
2. The C coding convention is unusual and non PEP-7 in 2.1.1 (after "if (self->first == NULL)" in Noddy_new)
3. The previous problem repeats in other instances of Noddy_new in the document

I found these while reading the 2.7 docs, but they could also exist in 3.x (didn't check).
