[pkg-wine-party] Bug#678001: Print information from 64 bit /usr/bin/wine in postinst or put them in /usr/share/doc

Package: wine64-bin
Version: 1.4.1-1
Severity: wishlist


it would be nice if the information printed by /usr/bin/wine from wine64-bin
could also be shown during postinst. Otherwise, one has to run wine from the
command line to even see this message, which is unfortunate for two reasons:

a) I usually don’t run wine from the command line
b) The package description explicitly states that this package contains
instructions how to enable Multi-Arch, but they are not in /usr/share/doc.
Running wine is not the action I expect when I want to get instructions.

Best regards & many thanks,
