[development] Path Redirect Location Storage

I did exactly that.  In my case, I was at /node/add/registration, which is where I wanted to go back to after registration/account 
creation, and redirected the user to /user, i.e.:


That takes the user to /mysite.com/user?destination=node%2Fadd%2Fregistration%3Fproduct_nid%3D2.  If he logs in from there, he is 
redirected back to mysite.com/node/add/registration.

However, if he is a new user and needs to create an account first, he clicks on the "Create New Account" link, which takes him to 
/user/register (without ?destination).  Therefore, when he is done registering, there is no ?destination parameter for the Forms 
API, so he stays at the user screen.

The way the module does the redirect after that is in hook_form_alter().  It looks for the 'node_checkout_redirect' variable on 
the user screens, and if it sees it, redirects to whatever is stored there.  But, as I mentioned, since $_SESSION is wiped out at 
the end of drupal_goto(), it doesn't know that the redirect needs to happen.  That's why I'm looking for an alternate storage 
location for that redirection location.
