That and "Export session".
And of course any other way of doing "return to start", e.g.
I can't think of anything else at the moment.

One way to do the UI for this feature would be:
add an item to the context menu for location markers, label it
something like "Use as session start".
So if I have a bunch of markers I could easily move the session
"start" among them without dragging anything, to suit whatever
i'm working on currently.
Would be especially useful in extremely long sessions.
