Happily, the qualities that make you bad a "flaky" crusts will make you 
great with period coffyns, where tensile strength is key.  Make lemonade 
out of those lemons, and make fabulous historical cooking vessels out of 
flour.  I bet you have the the might and the knowhow to make a 
multi-level raised Sea-Pie, let the little modern homemaker try that one 
with "flaky" crusts and watch them crumble.  Yay You!  =)
