I don't think adding wizards for tools is a good idea, this breaks the interface design. Imho it would be better to find a ui layout for the task dialog where all options are displayed at once so that the user can switch by selecting the correct input field. Then the return key can be used like tab to switch between the fields, this would then not break the current way of navigating.
