HildonWizardDialog should just be API additions to upstream GtkAssistant

seems to exist mostly just to make it easier to do input validation before
allowing the Next button to be clicked.
Surely this should just be a GtkAssistant API addition that could be submitted
upstream to GTK+?
Actually, I think this Hildon dialog was created before GtkAssistant was added
in GTK+ 2.10. So now is the time to remove it now that Maemo 5 is using GTK+
Well, GtkAssistant has such API, it's just a bit more general (it allows you to
jump to any page you want, not only the current and the next).
Although they serve for the same purpose, GtkAssistant look 'n feel differs a
lot from HildonWizard. Getting GtkAssistant to look as HildonWizard would
probably require (more) patching of GTK+. Also, GtkAssistant is a bit more
complex and porting from HildonWizard to GtkAssistant is not straightforward.
For these reasons, it was decided not to deprecate it, for now.
Although I agree that we should get rid of HildonWizard in the long term, it is
not going to happen for Fremantle.
