Now that wine-1.4.1-2 has hit wheezy, I would really like an updated
package with relevant fixes to be uploaded, with the explicit goal to
get the updated version included in wheezy.

By "relevant" I mean fixes for immediately user-visible issues, such as:

- the *.fon font issue issue
- getting rid of the libnss-mdns warning
- Providing icons for desktop environments (#679572) 

For the first two problems I have posted patches to this list:

* sfnt2fnt: Fix broken .fon files on big-endian architectures
* No longer remove *.fon files (affects: #680421)
* Remove libnss-mdns warning as the issue seems to have been fixed (closes: #474289)
* wine64-bin: Use xmessage (with fallback to console) for multiarch instructions

>From my (limited) expreience in getting the release team to accept
updated packages, I'say that this is worth a try.
