Maybe use write-contents-functions to make saving actually finalize.

Could you summarize what you're suggesting now, please? I previously suggested one change, to add (setq buffer-offer-save t) to the function "remember". Your suggestions taken together seem to involve multiple changes to achieve a) the same result as mine and b) auto-save protection, which seems worthwhile if it's similarly simple.
It's a shame to see existing small functionality reimplemented by a
mammoth package. But if no-one cares enough to do anything about it,
that's how it is I suppose.

I'm not sure it makes a lot of difference if org-capture is as simple to use, since org-mode is shipped as part of Emacs.
