Safe::World, if you can get it to work. I found it a bit crashy under
mod_perl, but I have a feeling that may have been the mod_perl compile on my
dev box at the time being a bit crashy in its own right.
There's a half-assed-attempt-at-a-module for this called Apache::Worlds lying
around somewhere in http://dev.catalystframework.org/repos/bast that I wrote
to play with the idea from which ideas might be salvageable even if code isn't.
