The current wizard API doesn't allow programmatic changes to wizard's state - it isn't possible to move to wizard's next step for example when user double-clicks selected item in 'new file' wizard.
The proposed change just makes public four existing methods in WizardDescriptor class. The methods are currently declared 'final package private'.

using the new API in new file/new project wizards
Y01 write some basic tests, please.
Y02 assert EventQueue.isDispatchThread() might be better than saying "is not safe to call...".
Y01: those methods are already used in WizardDescriptor unit tests, e.g. org.openide.WizardDescTest
i don't think i unit test those methods in any better way.
if there are no more comments, i'll integrate the changes tomorrow
Integrated into 'main-golden', will be available in build *201104220000* on http://bits.netbeans.org/dev/nightly/ (upload may still be in progress)
