SERVER-SIDE version of "remembering" user's last Drupal quicktab

Have Drupal remember a user's last QuickTab - on the SERVER side!

In this blog post I gave an example of client-side script to remember the last Drupal QuickTab a user loaded so that when he came back to that page it was already selected again, instead of the default tab. It's a fine solution, but in some cases it's a drag to have that first tab grind the server when you are immediately going to flick over to a different tab anyway.

So here's a server-side version that stores the last tab in the $_SESSION variable - it will recall the last tab that *executed* (which is not necessarily the last on the user viewed) but in most cases that's perfectly acceptable. Put this in your Global PHP header in the view:
