As far as I can tell, Michael has been the only one who has worked on
the 1.5.31-1 packages that are sitting in the NEW queue. Since quite
substantial changes have been made, so I think it's best to wait for
them to hit unstable first.

I have a few things sitting in my patch queue that I would like to see

(1) A rather large set of changes to the upstream build system that
    supports building Wine binaries and libraries that can be fully used
    with update-alternatives(8).
(2) Multiarch-enabled packages that enable a full WoW64 setup as
    intended by upstream. We seem to be mostly there, but wineserver
    belongs into /usr/bin.
(3) A simplification of the packages' update-alternatives(8) usage.
    In a multiarch setup there is no point in having notepad32-stable,
    notepad32-unstable, notepad64-stable, notepad64-unstable programs
    which are copies of the same wineapploader script anyway.
