I don't think so.  Unless someone has actual technical objections against the implementation, or thinks we shouldn't support automatic resume (and I think no one does), IMO I can commit whenever I'm ready.  Its fine for people to request new features or changes but theres no obligation beyond that the patch implement a feature we want in a technically sound and maintainable way without negatively impacting the existing use cases.  Beyond that you're all SVN committers, so you can make whichever improvements you want after the initial commit of the core of the patch.

This makes sense.  Once all the lang string issues are figured out, I'll probably just split the settings into a separate patch, post it on the tracker, and commit the core feature with something like Paul's suggestion.  Then Michael, Paul, or you can figure out the exact settings that should be presented to the user.
