It's not deep black magic. I said I needed gcc-mingw32 4.4.3. And Debian
doesn't have it. Some of us just aren't as understanding of what part of
that is hard to understand. I just don't get it?!

I have to abide by the rules and procedures of the Debian Project,
including the Debian Social Contract and various other requirements. The
builder of those packages does not. For example, if anyone outside
Debian needed, for example, gcc-mingw32 4.4.3 to compile a part of Wine,
he could just build an updated gcc-mingw32 himself and use it to compile
Wine, and distribute the resulting .debs, no problem. However, in
Debian, that's not allowed, as the gcc-mingw32 in Debian *must* be the
same version as used to build the Wine in Debian. And since I don't have
the audacity to try to NMU gcc-mingw32 with a new upstream release
myself, I wait.
