Don't show new page entries in Special:newpage for supressed redirects.

Patch to remove the new page entry from Special:RecentChange and special:newpages, if the new page gets moved with redirect supressed.

I'm not a 100% sure this is a good idea. This will only suppress the initial new page line in the RC (And newpages), and won't supress any other edits to the page. Does this behaviour really make sense? (Thats not rhetorical). It seems somewhat different from deleting a page, where none of the content is relevent, but when you move a page, the edits don't go away, they're just in a new title.

I suppose we could just change the new page entry in the RC to point to the other page, but that seems rather wrong too.

So anyhow, not sure what the right approach is.

Attached: killNPonMove.patch

I don't know about the general case, but I think that the somewhat more specific case of an unpatrolled page being moved to a different namespace should result in the new page entry being removed.

Adding +need-review...this patch needs some more input (reverted in r93986). I haven't delved into it deeply yet but it *feels* wrong.
