[Phoenix-pm] perl eval and the No Execute chips

I was reading an article through /. about Security, and I quote a
little from the article:

"Aitel cited the NX (No eXecute) technology being built into chips from
Intel and Advanced Micro Devices that will effectively prevent code
execution within data pages such as default heaps, stacks and memory

What if any effect will this new technology have on scripted languages
like perl?

Just wondering here.
