I think this is a great idea--as many of the recipes aren't really
recipes (as in php dropin modules).  It might be possible to move some
of the simpler "recipes" that don't involve downloadable code, but
just a tip or trick into this kind of section.  I'd vote a big yes on
this idea!

Anything to trim down the cookbook to actual "extensions" or "modules"
will make it a LOT neater. Just my two cents!
