You can get closer with Error, but it has other problems.

Given than Exception uses closures like Error I doubt it doesn't have these "other" problems too. The main problem is that currently the only way to add try/catch syntax to Perl without core changes it is to use closures what may cause memory leaks if you are not careful.
