The helper functions above will make it easier but using these functions  
will not be required. A recipe needed to run with in PHP 5.5 could rewrite

You need to be carefull with the scope of the internal variables used in the  
replacement (this also applies with our helper functions) and with the  
callback declaration, as some ways require PHP 5.3.
