This is something I want to add but probably not before version 2.0, after the new scheduler is implemented.

At the moment it is even difficult to stop a sequence, see 0001974 .
So restarting after that can be challenging.
We also need to clarify what the pause button do exactly, do it abort the current operation or wait for completion ?
Waiting can be long in the case of an exposure, it can also be long and useless in the case of auto-focus.
Aborting must be done in a way the operation can be restarted, ensuring the telescope is not moving away, or the camera is not let in a unusable state.

I agree it is a good idea. Sometimes I'm not happy with the focus and would like to have the possibility to start an extra autofocus run. An other reason could be a sudden loss of guiding due to mechanical problems and you want to reposition the telescope pointing. A third reason could be the desire to modify the sequence halfway.

I assume it is difficult to implement. It is a wish, not a must. :)

IIt is a wish for 2.0.
After pressing pause there might be a ask from CCDCiel :
1. Pause and discard runnung exposure
2. Pause and complete running exposure
3. Pause after completion of running step
