The problem is the assumption that the next time `emms-start' is called,
the same track will be playing. Also, whatever solution shouldn't
reference a particular player, of course.

emms-bookmarks.el was started to try and tackle this by being able to
save "bookmarks" on a per-track basis. I think that a solution to this
issue should either use emms-bookmarks.el, or a similar approach.

For instance, an option that (when enabled): if there are bookmarks in
the track being played, jump to the last bookmark.
