I object to your "exceptions" pragma. You are not powerful to prevent any exceptions from being generated by a snippet of code. To truely do that, you must eval wrap all possible functions and opcodes in that scope including the builtin ones and eat all runtime errors. A declaration like "no exceptions" is highly categorical and probably isn't the kind of guarantee that you can sanely promise. It certainly goes beyond your intent of merely affecting the "Fatal" module. Try to stay away from overreaching language when designing your API.

To be able to say "no exceptions" you need to prevent perl from throwing exceptions in addition to exceptions explicitly written in user code. Examples of runtime code that you'd need to handle are method calls on undefined values, blessing into references, sort routines returning non-numbers, etc. It would be possible to disable all possible exceptions but it seems like it's hard. I'd reserve such strong statements until and unless you can actually make those kinds of guarantees.
