Hello Jeremy,
I think too that modifying the existing wizard is the best way to do it.

Ages ago, I did some work on the wizards, while porting them to KDE4.
I might be able to help if you run into troubles.

For those of you who don't know Jeremy, he is a long-time KDE
contributor, and he was the person doing the bulk of the work to
convert KMM to git.

Best Regards,
