Package: wine
Version: 1.6.1-5
Followup-For: Bug #731146

It would also be good to allow wine32 as an alternative for "wine", for all those of us who currently only have 32-bit WINEPREFIXes, and menu items that call "wine".

$ sudo aptitude search --disable-columns -F '%p %V' 'wine ~i'
libwine 1.6.1-5                                 
libwine:i386 1.6.1-5
wine32:i386 1.6.1-5
wine64 1.6.1-5

$ sudo update-alternatives --config wine
There is only one alternative in link group wine (providing /usr/bin/wine): /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/wine/bin/wine
Nothing to configure.

Even better would be to have /usr/bin/wine as a wrapper that automatically switches between wine32/wine64 depending on what WINEPREFIX is used, but I'm not sure how hard that would be.
