in reply to Nested evals - are they evil?

I could see this being a way of adding a stack trace if die was used (Copy failed: Unable to save document: Unable to create directory: Insufficient permissions), but confess already does that (albeit using more technical text). An idea why this was done? Could this be a left-over from when die was used instead of confess?
