That question has no answer, since whenever server side code is running 
the user isn't on any page, but is in between two pages.

If you mean "which page the user was on when they submitted this 
request" that value should be in the "referer" http header (yes, it's 
misspelled in the spec).  If you mean the page for which the current 
request is generating output, that's available from the request object 
as well.

Note that if you mean the former, but are using a redirect-after-post 
style, you may get the post address instead of the address from which 
the post was posted.

Also note that if you've got any requests being submitted by javascript 
rather than the user (ajax), all this goes out the window for those
