There's probably a variety of approaches, but you could save the user
setting somewhere that the IDP could look it up (e.g. LDAP, a DB, etc.).
Then when they go back to the login page in the future you can pull their
saved value from your data source. And as far as sending it to the SP it
would be just another attribute lookout, as Scott notes.

Hope that helps!
