a) I hate to say this, but project_issue does this for issue nodes  
(though it doesn't use #multistep, it's really more the 4.7.x FAPI  
style of multi-page forms).
see, in particular, issue.inc, function project_issue_form() on the  
DRUPAL-5 branch.

b) I hardly think writing it up as a howto is a worthy goal. ;)  The  
code is evil, and all changing in D6...

c) I recently ripped all this code out, since we don't really need a  
full blown multi-step form, and it simplified a lot of ugly code to  
actually use 2 separate forms for this:
So, the 5.x-2.* version in HEAD no longer uses this approach. ;)
