Perl Core Syntax Wishlist: die should die

I hate die it is, in my humble opinion, one of the worst parts of perl. I really wish it would be deprecated, and removed, or at least replaced with something that would tell you were the code that was die-ing was being called. Replace its implementation with that of Carp’s croak or confess and I’d be happy. Better yet, let’s just get real exception support and deprecate die (even if that’s never removed deprecation just make that real big on its pod). If you’re using die please stop and use Carp, anyone using your module will thank (and by thank I mean not curse) you later.
