Subject: Idea for resume on startup / bookmart / etc

Idea for resume on startup / bookmart / etc

(congrats to the rockbox crew for making my iPod Nano way more useful
than my Rio Karma ever was)

Hey folks,

I had a feature idea that I wanted to bounce off people.

Let's assume that you either bookmark a playing file or stop the player
and turn it off.

It can logically be assumed that time passes.

Would it be nice to have an option where, when you either resume
playback on startup or play back from a bookmark point, that rockbox
automagically backs up N seconds (or N% of a total length, seconds), to
"give you context".

My scenario is that I listen to a lot of podcasts and have resume
playback on startup enabled. The problem is, I kind of "forget where I
was" and 10 seconds of what I've already listened to would get my head
back to remembering what they were talking about.

Anyone else think this is a worthwhile idea?
