And thanks for the initial work to Goswin !

Several versions for stable, testing and unstable is possible, but need a lot 
of work, because of different version of programs, dependencies and of course 
So I used the backports.org alternative, and I should be possible to make it 
work with it, but probably difficult (gij, gcj, jikes, kaffe, java, etc)
But I hope that openoffice.org2 will compile soon on amd64 !

I added wine in 0.6, I only made a little test and it's working for me.
you can make an update from my online repository.
