Cool! Now, we really need Björn and you talking to the community via the

Björn, Paulo, do you both have a blog?

I do - see my footer (not being an utterly active writer though). What needs 
to happen to get my blog aggreated to
??? (Ok, next to me starting to blog about LibO :))

Great! I remember ... I didn't know where to start, so I've forwarded
the request to Florian to add Or should the other one
be added as well?

The current advantage: all tasks are handled via the same interface /
workflow. So if you know how to do, it is efficient to apply the
available knowledge for a variety of field types. The problem the wizard
tries to address (in my understanding), is to address less experienced
people who want to work with more difficult field types. Here, the
correct result is more important than the number of steps.

I actually disagree with your analysis here. The current appraoch is neither 
fish nor flesh. Neither the process of selecting a certain field not the 
interface to configure it are optimized, consistent or even transparent.

Of course, optimization is always right :-) What luck that I've
primarily wrote "advantage: all tasks are handled via the same
interface / workflow" - and did not consider it perfect. Phew ;-)))

Splitting this up into a two step: 1. Wizard to select the field and 2. 
Provide optimized interfaces for configuration of the different fields will 
address more and less experienced users in the same way, because it will 
provide a consistent and transperent way to select the field you need and a 
suitable interface to configure it. It does not even need to be more steps 
than before - they only need to be presented in a much clearer manner.

Hopefully tomorrow I will find the time to illustrate my words.

That would be great!
