A few weeks ago, I took Ove's 1.1.35-1 package that I found at
<git://git.debian.org/git/pkg-wine/wine.git> and tried to build 1.2.3
with it. Very few fixes were needed and there is only a small number of
issues that probably can be fixed in the packaging scripts.
In my opinion, it would be best for users to get a package called "wine"
(not "wine-$version") into unstable as soon as possible. I can't imagine
that users are interested in packages of upstream's snapshot releases
from 2 years ago.

Since there are a few people who have been able to build their own
packages, perhaps it is time to turn packaging of Wine in Debian into a
real team effort.
