Do we still need the C++ portability guide distinct from "Using C++" doc?

Is it still useful that
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/C%2B%2B_Portability_Guide
exists as a document that's separate from
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Using_CXX_in_Mozilla_code
? There is some duplication. When the two disagree, the latter seems
to be right. The former also contains stuff that predate our move away
from NSPR integers and says not to use initializer lists because of
HP-UX!

Should we
 a) update https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/C%2B%2B_Portability_Guide
or
 b) merge the still-valid parts of
https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/C%2B%2B_Portability_Guide
into https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Using_CXX_in_Mozilla_code
and add a redirect
?

Option b seems more useful to me.
