#11957: Change Admin Menu Save-State Rules

 When we redid the menus in 2.7, we built in a save-state to keep open
 sections you had explicitly expanded until you explicitly closed it. I
 think it was a good experiment, and in some cases is helpful (like for
 people who are frequently accessing discussion settings or some such), but
 overall I think it adds to the problem of having too many menus expanded
 on a small screen pushing the lower menu items out of reach without
 scrolling. Mark and I have talked about various options for this, and we
 both agree that we should remove the save-state feature from the menu. So,
 the section you're in would stay open and highlighted, and if you opened
 another menu section to see the subs, if you had another menu open before,
 it would close. You could only ever have one section open at a time in
 addition to the one you're currently in. Maybe we could release the
 original save-state menus controls as a plugin in case there's anyone who
 prefers it that way.
