I was just saying I am not so sure the most common bookmark user uses
the bookmark on exit.
Also changing what a new user gets vs an upgrade is not usually a
good idea. What if I want to setup another frontend. Now it behaves
differently and I have to go spend a bunch of effort to figure out why
the heck this is and how to fix it.

I would think that would be very confusing. I think people expect
playback to start from the beginning in general when they select a
recording. Not a good default to change.
Do not assume single users. Most households have multiple users who
may watch the same show at different times.
I think the current defaults that have been around for years are good,
and the suggested changes to the defaults are not.
