#2270: Shortcodes being parsed on plugin page

 I'm aware this has been closed but is there a solution for those using the
 remaining plugins? My most popular plugin in the directory is YouTube
 Embed, which uses the YouTube shortcode - the instructions require me to
 use the shortcode but, right now, it doesn't display.

 I believe I can use double brackets (although I've not tried it) to get
 around this but, as a solution, this works for the directory but not for
 those displaying the README in other ways (e.g. reading the raw file).

 I'm assuming these shortcodes have been left so they can be used on other,
 non-directory pages. Is there a way to enable them only for these and
 disable for the plugin listings?
