Ahh, /e makes all the difference...sneaky little bugger isn't explicitly documented in Modifiers, but is mentioned in Regexp Quote Like Operators (which I didn't look at until now).

It's not documented in perlre because perlre is ridiculously pedantic. The /e doesn't modify the regular expression; it modifies the replacement text.
