I've been working with the new form wizard in 1.4 and I discovered that apparently the goto form step feature was designed to not store data from the current step before going to the step specified.
This seems like a situation that will easily lead to confusion and frustration. I suggest that in addition to the current cancel and goto step feature a save and goto step feature is needed.
I created a patch that changes the behavior of wizard_goto_step into a save and goto, which seems safer to me, and then adds a wizard_cancel_step_goto.
Please feel free to tinker with the code. I'm happy as long a I get a little more control over how data is handled when going to another step.
