On second thought, if your perl was compiled with multiplicity, perhaps
you could get away with using XS or Inline::C to call a c function *that
embeds another interpreter* and use that to try things. I'd check CPAN
because I vaguely recall that embedding perl from perl has already been
wrapped up somewhere.
