      Description

      I dont know why the wizard buttons are final but this makes it hard to add custom behaviour to them. For example, we need to hide a button if it's not enabled. We had to re-create all buttons by ourselves to do that instead of just overriding the isVisible() method of a button.
      Affects:
      org/apache/wicket/extensions/wizard/CancelButton
      org/apache/wicket/extensions/wizard/FinishButton
      org/apache/wicket/extensions/wizard/LastButton
      org/apache/wicket/extensions/wizard/NextButton
      org/apache/wicket/extensions/wizard/PreviousButton

      Suggestion: remove 'final' from class declaration

          i removed the finals from the class but there are still finals for some methods, but most of them are controlled by the WizardModel (like enabled)
