  If it's changed to LVL_IMPL+1, it's too easy for someone to forget to 
add fields to the array when he adds more wizard levels.  The array will 
increase in size, but not have fields defined for the top slot(s).  As it 
is, in my version (bpl8), the array is defined to 38, so only if I have 
more than 8 (!) wizard levels do I have to worry about it.
