Will it work if you substitute &some_subroutine; instead of die?

Well, in principle, sure. But make sure that he some_subroutine realizes that there may be error conditions it can't handle, and dies if it encounters a situation it isn't explicitly designed to handle.

You need to be defensive when you're designing this subroutine. Defensive and paranoid.
