Well, essentially all the various ways to make sure that your code
functions as you want it to.  Now this was a very half-baked note I
fired off, but what I had in mind is detailing things like:

 - details of using die() and warn().
 - catching or ignoring signals.
 - throwing an error from within a module (back to the calling
 - Carp::
 - how system() returns 0 on success.

And whatever else.  Maybe this is documented well enough and I'm just
not a good researcher, I don't know :-)
