in thread multiple method calls against the same object (f.ex GUI programming)

Just use exceptions instead. Nothing wrong with wrapping a series of these things in an eval block to catch the exception.

I prefer exceptions when an action will likely work 95% of the time or more. That way, the testing doesn't interfere with my examination of the control flow, and you get to do nice tricks like a "return $self" chain.
