Comment (by ptahdunbar):

 Updated the patch with some bug fixes and improvements.

 Here's an example usage. It adds two blank tabs to the dashboard as well
 as a global tab with some content.
 add_action( 'screen_meta', 'how_to_screen_meta_api_example' );
 function how_to_screen_meta_api_example() {
         add_screen_meta_tab( 'foobar', __( 'Foobar' ), 'dashboard' );
         add_screen_meta_tab( 'barfoo', __( 'Barfoo' ), 'dashboard',
 'read', 8 );

         add_screen_meta_tab( 'new-tab', __( 'This is a new tab' ),
 'global' );
         add_screen_meta_section( 'example-1', 'how_to_example_1', 'new-
 tab' );
         add_screen_meta_section( 'example-2', 'how_to_example_2', 'new-
 tab', 9 );

 function how_to_example_1() {
         <h5>Example 1</h5>
         <p>This is an example of how to add a custom screen meta section.

 function how_to_example_2() {
         <h5>Example 2</h5>
         <p>Anything can go inside here. Maybe a form? Totally. Although,
 you'll still have to do all the heavy lifting etc.</p>
         <p>How about some lorem ipsum? Sure, why not.</p>
