Like I said, better for you, worse for me - an added keypress.

No, it's all my own work! So you're saying the code and binsize are
smaller, and the code less complex with this patch? ;-)

Anyway, we're concentrating on the negatives and the problems,
rather than looking positively towards a possible solution.

How about a new config item "Restart completed playlist on RESUME?"
(or similar, less verbose wording). 3 values: "Never", "Always" and
"Ask". "Never" is the curent situation with a splash and no restart.
"Always" skips the splash and restarts on pressing PLAY (or
autoresume on boot). Ask presents a prompt "Nothing to resume,
restart from beginning?", with Yes and No options. Default value
__must__ be "Never", as that is current functionality. That I think
keeps all parties happy.

Comments (positive if possible!!)?
