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.
