I suggest ...

Carry on from where it left off

Having Bliss back to work where it left off when restarting would be very useful especially for NAS devices with scheduled start / stop package.
(allows you to run Bliss only at night to save memory/cpu when you use the NAS at day)

        Nice idea. Currently the behaviour upon a full rescan is:

        - Set all albums to "in progress"
        - Work through each one (in parallel, five at a time)
        - Each album changes to completed when assessed

        Now if bliss is stopped halfway through, some will remain "in progress".

        When bliss is restarted, any existing "in progress" albums change to "unknown" with a message "Didn't complete assessment before bliss was paused. Press rescan to re-assess".

        We need that to change, so that in progress albums are queued up again. I'm not sure this should be default behaviour though.

        One option is to pass a parameter on the command line, so your scheduler (cron?) would call bliss with an argument to restart in progress items.
