Well, wizards have their place. But like anything else, they can be
overused or used in places where they aren't needed. Wizards are just
a graphical state machine interface. Sometimes there isn't a
sequentiality needed and the same problem could be solved with a
dialog box containing all the necessary tunable controls (set to
appropriate defaults) with OK and Cancel buttons. Other times, there
are things you have to do at step 3 that you can't do until the user
has entered some data at step 2.
