I agree that it can be useful honestly. When a playlist ends, it'd be
nice to have the option to _manually_ restart it without hunting it down
again. I just don't think it should ever automatically be restarted by
other things (such as rebooting the player) as I don't consider that a
manual request to start a "finished" playlist, no matter what the start
screen is.

Right now if a playlist stops, and you had wanted to repeat it but
forgot to set repeat, it is a little annoying that you can't just press
"Play" to get it going again.
