in thread eval {require module};?

Many months later I now know how eval{} can fail and yet not set $@. It happens if a DESTROY method called during the stack-unwind also does an eval.
use AtExit; eval { my $q = AtExit->new(sub{eval{}}); die "Oops\n"; }; print $@; # Prints nothing

    Which means you have to
    sub DESTROY{ local $@; eval{...} }
    if you want to use eval in DESTROY.
