[pkg-wine-party] Bug#734051: wine32: missing Breaks/Replaces on wine

Package: wine32
Version: 1.6.1-11
Severity: serious
Justification: Policy 7.6.1

When upgrading from 1.6.1-8 to 1.6.1-11, apt may choose to unpack the new
wine32 before the new wine, which fails:

> Unpacking wine32 (1.6.1-11) over (1.6.1-8) ...
> dpkg: error processing archive /var/cache/apt/archives/wine32_1.6.1-11_i386.deb (--unpack):
>  trying to overwrite '/usr/share/man/man1/wine32.1.gz', which is also in package wine 1.6.1-8

I believe the correct fix is as easy as this, since wine and wine32 should
presumably be upgraded in lockstep anyway:

> Package: wine32
> ...
> Breaks: wine (<< ${binary:Version})
> Replaces: wine (<< ${binary:Version})

See Policy §7.6.1 for details.

Workaround for affected users: "apt-get -f install" usually resolves this
class of bug.
