Package: libwine-dev
Version: 1.4.1-4
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The description field of libwine-dev says:
| Description: Windows API implementation - development files
|  Wine is a free MS-Windows API implementation.
|  This is still a work in progress and many applications may still not work.
|  .
|  This package provides the C header files.

While this is true, it neglects to mention that this package also

 * The programs winedump, winegcc, winemaker, wmc, winebuild, widl, and

 * (stubby) manpages for the Windows API.
