For buttons there exists the attribute confirm. When this attribute is set, then when the button is pressed a dialog box appears before the action is processed.

In the case of the Sales Quotation you can change the following line of the form view to implement a dialog box:

 <button name="cancel" states="draft,sent" string="Cancel" groups="base.group_user"/>


 <button name="cancel" states="draft,sent" string="Cancel" confirm="Are you sure you want to cancel this quotation?" groups="base.group_user"/>

Hi Andreas, thank you for this excellent answer. I am hoping to put this modification into a patch (so that I do not need to make the change each time I update the code). If you are able to help, please see http://help.openerp.com/question/27344/is-there-a-beginners-guide-to-writing-a-patch/. Thanks!

I have read into this some more and the way to ensure that changes remain even after updating is to create a new view which inherits the existing view.
