**********EDIT 6 Nov 2010: Link to full and updated build**********
I've had a lot of fun with my main, Ghoste. Recently some guildies and other friends have expressed interest in my build, so I finally decided to post the basics of it here on the forums.
Most importantly, I want readers to realize that the enjoyment I get out of this build is as much a philosophy to approaching quests and challenges as it is a character build.
End stats assume some gear and self buffs for stealth skills. Didn't really bother figuring out gear for the rest of the build; players can do that easily enough themselves.
And I made a little video demonstration of some of the neat stuff this build can do.
The stealth skills are cross class for a wizard, so it would obviously be quite possible to get them higher by either doing the same idea as a bard, ranger, or rogue, or by taking a level as one of those classes.

To give you an idea of the kind of stuff you can manage with this build, a guildie with the same build went with me through the Shrieking Mines. We managed to complete the quest by doing ONLY the quest objectives. That means we went in there, killed the 5 ogre magi and the 3 mindflayers, and absolutely nothing else. We are setting goals in our guild to do other quests in a similar manner.
For 28 points, leave str at 8 and wis at 6.
