Genuine question, I'm sorry:

Is it worth documenting things we recently removed? Right now, we don't
really have these docs hosted in a searchable way online in a
per-version format. Once the notice is gone, it's gone from the mirror.

I removed some bitmap functionality not too long ago and I created a
"Recently Removed" section as a bit of a troubleshooting guide should it
be needed.

- Do we want this section?
- Should I remove it?
- Can we add historical docs to the website to see previous deprecated
docs in a searchable manner?
