Better UX after incorrect information during initial setup

completed by: The Little Pirate

mentors: Andrew Nacin

As described in the following Trac ticket, our user experience for errors during the configuration file setup process can be improved upon.

To complete this task you need to create a patch which improves the UX by allowing the user to return to the initial form, repopulating their initial values, and offering some basic validation errors.

You need to work with a trunk / 3.1-beta install and you should enable WP_DEBUG in your wp-config.php file. The ticket provides more direction.
