Huge Form - help in breaking into pieces for Create/Edit

I’ve a form with 60 columns. I’d like to break this down into JUI Tabs & JUI Accordians. Besides, I’d like to put a timer for ajax based update as one save button is risky [should the session expires or the user forgets]. Please help me push in the right direction.

I can recommend the wizard behavior: ;)

I also think wizard-behavior would be a good choice for a multi page solution.

An accordion approach may need some tweaking for the tabs to open and close while tabbing through the form fields. Actually I did create such a page but unfortunately I’m unable to share it at this time.
