Those things you mention fall into the "doctor, it hurts when I do this" category. Normal code shouldn't need DESTROY at all, and if it does, it should be extremely careful. And if you're creating complex overloaded exception objects, you have already lost. What does your test module's overloaded $SIG{__DIE__} do with a module that itself overloads $SIG{__DIE__}?

Sure, it's possible to build ever-more-complicated exception mechanisms with lots of corner cases, and to require more testing modules to control them. Sometimes you may even be forced into this silliness. But since you're inviting a world of hurt by doing so, you should ask yourself first whether a simpler solution could work.
