If you like the wonderful simplicity of tape players you should use one... 8-)
On a tape player when you press PLAY there is not much to wonder about what to play!

From what I read (I have not yet tried it) Hardeep's function behaves as the rest of Rockbox, i.e. once you have pressed OFF you NEED to say what you want to play next, whatever what was playing before. And if it was a playlist (a real one or the queue) once you have stopped it you cannot resume it other than by rebooting, eventually. What you need is either the bookmark feature as standard, or an active Resume function somewhere in the menu. I would support you on both options, but this is not Hardeep's "responsibility", that both should be (if accepted) standard Rockbox functions and should not have to be re-implemented in all additional functions.

Do you agree? Jean.
