This is a case where automatic playlist regeneration would be best avoided,
I think. Resuming would continue to play the previous playlist, thus
continuing with the correct program with no need for any clever code. (I
don't much like "clever code".)

The thing you'd lose would be the automatic addition of new files, which
could be accomplished with a "Refresh Playlist" menu option.
