in thread eval to replace die?

Ignoring the tennis match going on here, your answer of 'not equivalent' raises the obvious question of what is? I will probably upload to CPAN with the problem resolved using Try::Tiny, but I still wonder if there is a relatively simple Perl solution that just hasn't occurred to me?

    If the problem is that exception objects should be used instead of die(), then Try::Tiny won't solve this at all!

    Try::Tiny provides an easy-to-use alternative to eval - but without using some other module to provide exception objects, you'll still be stuck having to call die() in the catch{} block.
