I haven't used ghc-mod enough to have a crash happen to me. I couldn't get
it to work the times I'd tried it and others make this complaint. Whereas
GHCi works for everyone!

Herbert doesn't have time to hack on it, but was encouraging about
continuing with ghci-ng. I'm thinking to try forward-porting ghci-ng to GHC
7.8, or otherwise extracting GHC 7.8's GHCi again and then backporting it
to 7.6. (Under the assumption that current + past is a reasonable number of
GHCs to support.) I'm going to experiment with the JSON interface and I'll
report back with results.
