Why not splitting the package in a playonlinux-common (arch:all) which would
contain everything and a playonlinux (arch:any) which would contain the
easter egg ? This would be sort of a tank to kill a fly, but if the
easteregg is fine. :)

For the buildds time, wine is in any case only packaged for i386 and amd64.
