The statement about not being documented is not true - almost all the 
documentation is now oriented towards new-style classes and where they 
aren't it's a bug. Those resources however are still useful. Create a 
wiki page and redirect to that?

As someone else pointed out, although old a lot of that information 
about old ports is still 'current'. Again, converting to a wiki page 
seems like a good idea...
