[Python-Dev] Incorrect Misc/NEWS entry

One entry in Misc/NEWS reads:

- Objects allocated using the new PyMalloc_New and PyMalloc_NewVar
  functions will be allocated using pymalloc if it is enabled.  These
  objects should be deallocated using PyMalloc_Del.  The PyObject_{New,
  NewVar,NEW_VAR,Del,DEL} APIs have been changed to always use
  PyMem_MALLOC and PyMem_FREE, even if pymalloc is enabled.  The
  PyCore_* family of APIs have been removed.

I can't find PyMalloc_New anywhere in the source code. Is this perhaps
a typo for PyObject_New()?

Also, PLAN.txt is still in the top-level directory.  Is it still
relevant for 2.3, or was everything in it finished for 2.2?
