stop/resume long batches?

I have about 50,000 files to convert on a slow-ish desktop, so I want to be able to start and stop a long encode. I can't see a way to pause ('stop all' makes the file list disappear) or to make it restart a long list but skip the ones that are already done. I see from searching that there was some discussion about the latter a few years ago, but I don't know if Max has changed since then...

Please help! Trying to remember which files I've done already, or moving finished albums to a new directory, is not so appealing. (Although if there were a post-convert hook I could use to run an arbitrary program after a batch finished, that would ease things too.)
