There is a way to allow this in execution-after-Finish-button mode, too.
In the settings XML sent by the FE to the BE, add a flag that makes the BE
pause after every step's execution and wait for a signal from the FE to
continue. Also add an option to tell the BE to skip executing a step, instead
of supplying data saying how to execute it.
Then the user can choose to skip step X, click 'finish - execute with pauses',
and when it comes to step X do whatever he wants in another console.
