I guess for the time being wine-development should have the same
conflicts/replaces like wine-unstable to wine and vice-versa.
Or you just have to take care of regedit.

Related to the solution that you choose for this bug, I wonder whether
you consider wine and wine-development to be coinstallable and whether
you are basically done with the "big changes" for the wine packages (see
#741702 wine-unstable: not yet ready for stable release).

Personally I'd hope for a single /usr/bin/wine for wine and
wine-development, managed with Debian's alternatives system, instead of
the 3rd-party-(own scripts, winetricks, playonlinux, ...)-breaking

Still, a huge Thank You for your efforts and I hope you get wine in
shape before the freeze.
