     Hello Ove!
     I appreciate your work and time, what follows is just a 
constructive opinion for your consideration.
     Many of the things you mention are really upstream bugs and 
considering your limited time it would be best just to delegate that 
work to upstream (coinstallability, multiarch, etc.).
     Instead of aiming for perfection and missing Wine 1.4 in Wheeze I 
think it would be far more useful to focus on having only one "wine" 
package of the 1.4.x version in 32 bits without 64 bits support and 
without support for coinstallability of a "wine-unstable" package.
     I think thats far more useful than just missing Wheeze and having 
only the outdated 1.0 version.
     If anyone needs the 64 bits version or a wine of the 1.5 series in 
Wheeze then it will have to build it or maybe someone could provide a 
package for that specific purpose conflicting with the one provided in
