Why? I think, you've misinterpreted what I wrote: I only described what I
currently use for new projects, and that's [sssad]. But I still have tons of
old projects that use Memento and as long as the required externals are there,
it Just Works(tm). 

I suspect the crash reported here is due to some externals issue. I've seen
Memento crash, when the wrong [prepend] was used, that's why I removed all
[prepend] from Memento a long time ago. Another reason for crashes has been a
conflict that [pool] had with other flext-based externals (When I gdb-debugged
this, I found crashes happen in xsample, which isn't even used in Memento.) But
AFAIR, later versions of flext didn't show this crash anymore and recompiling
all flext-externals fixed it for me. 

That was long ago. So all in all I think, Memento isn't causing crashes anymore
on its own.

That's up to you. Memento needs [pool], though.
