The only two behaviours it has are "were you last had the file browser"
or "currently playing song." To make this analogous to the resume
feature, imagine if the browser would sometimes open in the location of
the currently playing song, and sometimes in the root, depending on
which song was playing, and you had no way of knowing where it would be
until you pressed select and found out.

Currently at least, the "follow playlist" option will always cause the
exact same behaviour - show you the file browser with the current song
selected. It doesn't change from track to track.
