Very likely, there won't be an Emacs 22.4. GNU Emacs 23 is in the
pretest phase, and it shall be released soon. It contains Tramp 2.1.15
(plus some patches from Tramp 2.1.16-pre).

Tramp 2.1 offers the same multi hop functionality, but with another
configuration mean. Read the Tramp 2.1 documentation

  (info "(tramp)Multi-hops")

Sorry, but the old syntax is not supported anymore for years. Migrating
your ~/.recentf should be possible by `query-replace-regexp'.
Additionally, you must customize `tramp-default-proxies-alist'. That's
it, one shot.

I could support you in that migration.
