Where would the users get the idea that it's possible to interrupt
query-replace and resume it anytime later, if single-file query-replace
doesn't support this feature?  I can't find where this feature
of continuing the loop is documented.  (info "(emacs) Query Replace")
only says:

     To restart a ‘query-replace’ once it is exited, use ‘C-x <ESC>
  <ESC>’, which repeats the ‘query-replace’ because it used the minibuffer
  to read its arguments.  *Note C-x <ESC> <ESC>: Repetition.
