in thread Throw from within a DESTROY block

just completely ignoring during-DESTROY exceptions? I don't have 5.14 handy anywhere so I can't test exactly what it does.

They are output to STDERR like before.

$ perl -Mwarnings -Mstrict -E ' sub DESTROY { say "invoked destructor"; die "aieeee" } say "creating object"; { bless( {} ) } say "object destroyed (should not reach here): $@" ' creating object invoked destructor (in cleanup) aieeee at -e line 2. object destroyed (should not reach here):

Like before, that only happens if warnings are on, so it can be completely silent!!

IIRC, more work is planned, but I haven't heard anything in a while.
