Either ditch or fix @New

                 Key: CDI-170
                 URL: https://issues.jboss.org/browse/CDI-170
             Project: CDI Specification Issues
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Concepts, Contexts
    Affects Versions: 1.0
            Reporter: Mark Struberg
             Fix For: TBD

The specification of @New is currently not really usable. It is really only for creating injected but unmanaged and unintercepted instances of a class. But this usecase is weird and imo just not needed. If the class under construction is an 'old' Pojo (without @Inject, etc) then it doesn't need to get managed. And it also doesn't provide any benefit over just using new Pojo();
Also you cannot @New classes which don't have a default ct.

I just found no sane scenario where we cannot use a producer method instead.

Can we simply deprecate @New?
