You mean, besides completely hijacking the package? 

The last maintainer upload is dated 2010/05/23. 

So, from my POV, you (Michael) and Hilko Bengen seem to be the real
package maintainers for wine.

My suggestion: do a maintainer upload of 1.4 in unstable, unless it
would affect some transition. And do it now.

PS: I have no particular interest in wine, but, really, from what I
see, this seems to be the only solution to bring  more life to the
package.  And, of course, I have no authority (except my ignorance)
for suggesting this. Just giving my advice..:)
