in thread eval, but syntax-check only -- like perl -c

You're probably aware of this already, but there will still be ways for sneaky programmers to get around restrictions like that. For instance:
my @backward_chars = ('e', 's', 'u'); my $watch_out = (reverse join "",@backward_chars) . " Data::Dumper;"; eval $watch_out; my $x = Dumper([1,2,3]); print $x;

I've managed to use Data::Dumper without "use" every appearing explicitly in the code.

Update: D'oh, I forgot to consider the all-important "wrap in an anonymous subroutine" part, which would seem to defer actual execution of the code. My bad.
