If you're doing a backport to squeeze, you really shouldn't be
touching the 1.0 stuff at all.

I would also advise looking more at wine 1.4, since that's the version
presently in testing.  Official backports need to come from testing.
Well its possible to backport from unstable, but its really
discouraged, and I think there is backports-sloppy for that.

The multiarch conversion is not that simple.  Anyway backporting
multiarch packages to squeeze is probably rather difficult.
