...if they're embedded in an eval block...
That is an actual option of the poll, in case you missed it.
...if they've been careful about their backups...
And I wanted the options to be Perl specific, while this isn't. But your remark anyway kind of reminds me of Desty Nova, a fictional charachter from the Battle Angel Alita manga, who at some time was beheaded by Alita - yet he had a backup of his cerebral chip implanted in his stomach. (Of course he also could not die for being beheaded because of the nanomachines he injected in his self.) Actually I am unsure about which version of Perl Nova uses for his own work...
