Safe can -- if (ab)used correctly -- prevent your program from dieing as well.

    Safe can prevent die from being called, but not dying in general, or even due to "bad" derefs.

    If you wanted to change the behaviour of `->`, especially in a lexical scope, you could use an opcode checker. The autovivification pragma is an example of such.
