Well, I certainly have nothing against you starting from scratch.
But I have to say, too often people on this list reject a solution
because they want something 'better' just because they want it perfect.
I'd rather have a *working* solution than something perfect which might
never get done.

If you put it into the executable, then it won't work. After all: it has
to catch a segfault, and a segfault will *stop* the application. That's
why it is implemented as a dll.

But are you sure you want to start from scratch with a crashhandler? You
could also start using airbag:
