Fatal overrides open; overriding I/O functions has been prohibited by coding standards nearly everywhere I've worked.

Also, the above is very much simplified from the live module I use (NDA and all that, can't be too careful): my actual code calls out to Log::Log4Perl and optionally calls out to Carp's croak or carp functions, falling back to warn if these can't be found.

AFAIK, Fatal doesn't do those things. Besides, even if I didn't have those requirements, most code I write falls under requirements such that CPAN modules must be used as-installed (no modification): since the functionality I require is so easy to duplicate, better to have it in a module I can actually extend later.

Larry Wall is Yoda: there is no try{} (ok, except in Perl6; way to ruin a joke, Larry! ;P)
