Ok, maybe... if you fork your process and orphan your objects via circular references and maybe if you are doing threading (which I gather is mostly a perl 5.8ism) you can still keep running code in those objects in a different process. Yeah, that's the ticket. (keep in mind this is just speculation)
Then we'll just write perl modules to r00t your system. Once w3 0wn j00z, we'll go on to install loadable kernel modules to tinker in your process space directly. We'll use your lexicals from the inside out!
