Sounds right, please apply.
Or maybe (I don't use remember) you want to add remember-finalize to
kill-emacs-hook or kill-emacs-query-functions.

It seems to me that it's more consistent to make Emacs prompt to save the remember buffer, as it does for other unsaved buffers (the alternative suggested here would make Emacs silently save the remember buffer if exited), but I'd appreciate some guidance.
