Since this is the house rule thread, I will say that, while I do prefer perma-death (sorry, but I like death to be ultimate and inviolate), I do love resuscitation. I even got the idea from real life: if someone's heart stops, but you get it restarted within a few minutes, you might be able to preserve their life. I went with the exact same logic, just with healing magic. If you can get the dead character's HP above their death threshold within a few minutes of death, you can bring that character back. After a few minutes, it's just too late. It nicely reconciles perma-death and being able to keep characters, since a few minutes gives you at least 30 rounds.
The visual of a Paladin or Cleric defibrillating somebody with healing magic is also just plain awesome.
