[pkg-wine-party] Bug#782896: wine32 recommends of wine ignores already installed foreign arch version

Source: wine-development
Version: 1.7.40-1
Severity: normal


I had the following packages installed from 1.7.40-1 (missing the 64-bit
packages due to #781557:)

ii  libwine-development:i386     1.7.40-1     i386
ii  wine-development             1.7.40-1     amd64
ii  wine32-development           1.7.40-1     i386

When updating to 1.7.41-1, aptitude tries to pull wine-development
(i386), which conflicts with the already installed wine-development
(amd64). Obviously this was triggered by this change:
  * "Recommend wine from the wine32 and wine64 packages
    (closes: #778435)."

The IMO correct way would be to keep the already installed
wine-development (amd64). I did this for now manually.

I haven't tested it yet, but I guess a "Multi-Arch: allowed" for the
wine-development package would solve this correctly.
