Lock/memorize entered node group view

When I enter a node group with the tab key, I would like to prevent the view from automatically getting back out when I deselect and re-select the associated object.
I’m making a template file to be used as a little program by people who aren’t familiar with Blender and if the interface changes unexpectedly they may find it annoying and a waste of time.

Is there any way to memorize the view like this?

In both 2.79 and 2.80 there’s pin button that does exactly what I think you’re asking for: It locks the current node editor to the current material as well as the current group view state, and it should not change when you alter your object selection (or pretty much anything else).
