Any recipes that (still) have not been upgraded to avoid the /e modifier
are almost undoubtedly then not under active development. I would strongly
suggest that you upload your modified code to the relevant recipe page as a
new release, simply documenting that the changes in the release are for PHP
5.5 compliance.  (You will find that different developers document &
package their new releases slightly differently, so you may have to upgrade
different recipe pages in a different way...)

If you learned things along the way that are not adequately documented at
http://www.pmwiki.org/wiki/PmWiki/CustomMarkup#php55 then please add to
that page appropriately.
