FedEx doesn't seem to nuke packages. So that should be safe. Don't know 
about other companies.

I doubt it. All the chemical process has already taken place. The film is 
no longer sensitive to light (= radiation). I think the only way you can 
destroy the film after it has been processed is by prolonged exposure to UV 
light. That will cause  the neg/slide to fade.
