You're not an authority on it, are you?

Package dependencies are calculated automatically at build time. In
theory, all you have to do is rebuild the package on an up-to-date
system, and the new, correct, dependencies will magically end up in the
package. No need for trial and error.

The real problem with the transition would, perhaps, have more to do
with the transition making it nigh impossible to have the amd64
autobuilders actually build 32-bit Wine. I've been told that it's now
necessary to do apt-get install ia32-wine, and the only amd64 packages
that could possibly be built now, would be transition packages that
depend on ia32-apt-get...
