I don't see why "bookmarks" and "resume points" should be different in
the end - there's a bookmark on stop function. It would make sense to
replace the existing bookmark function with a better one that has the
capability of the necessary automatic resuming behaviour.

There really shouldn't be two separate ways of storing the last position
in a track, and while that's necessary now, I think the goal should be
to incorporate the two features into one, not make them explicitly
separate, actually.
