[Developer] API - Play and pause after X milliseconds

Status: New Suggestion

Please add an extra optional parameter, 'pause_after_ms', to the API endpoint '/me/player/play'.
The value should, if set, tell the player to pause after playing X milliseconds.
If the parameter 'position_ms' is set, the pause should be X milliseconds after the 'position_ms'.

I need this functionality when creating a music quiz, where the contestants should only listen to a short part of a song. Currently I have to make two API calls for the same functionality, which makes a precise timing impossible.
