"Is there a way to re-render a comp in the Render Queue that was previously rendered?"
I always save my project BEFORE I render, and when the render's done I hit Revert. If there's a problem, I make the change and the comp is already in the render queue, ready to go.
Is there a way to have the Output Module always default to what the user wants instead of always switching to 'Lossless'?
Sure: make your own custom output module, and make it the default.

Select the item in the Render Queue and hit Cmnd/Ctrl-Shift-D. This will duplicate the Render Queue item and assign the same output name as the original.
It's important to remember that the render cue renders the current state of a composition. Once you close AE, unless you have set up versioning, the changes are baked in and cannot be undone.
Thanks to all for the tips!! Greatly appreciated.
Surely the easiest way of doing this would actually be:
- when you create a new render item it has a "render" checkbox set to ticked
- when render is complete the checkbox remains but is automatically deselected (rather than mysteriously going missing as it does now)
- if you manually recheck the box the status changes form "done" to "Queued"
This would seem logical since if you had a number of sequences that all need to be re encoded in light of a programmatic change, you could select all items in the render queue, right click and set "queue all" (or alternativly click a checkbox in the "Render column" to select all" and then press "Render".
Duplicating and then deleting just seems messy, requires more clicks/key presses, and is not very convenient especially if you have a long render queue list.
