Might that be a little hasty to remove the EMEM page so soon?  I'm sure there are developers still working with older releases that are using emem.  I don't know what information was there or how useful it was compared to the various README's, but presumably it provided additional information beyond what was available anywhere else.

So I deleted the EMEMification page from the wiki but I'm not sure what to do with the Canary page:

It looks like wmem does use canaries (under some circumstances?) so maybe it shouldn't be deleted.  But I'm not familiar enough with what wmem is doing to rewrite it either...
