Bug#1029536: wine64-stable ENOENT

I don't expect an issue with adding an /usr/lib/wine/wine64-stable

regression, which I can't comment on since I'm not involved in current
packaging) or wrong usage.

Somehow /usr/bin/wine-stable has correct files in the right place, so
/usr/bin/wine-stable works

Yes, as soon as "wine" is installed it sets up the Debian alternatives system. (Which is used so both the stable and the development Wine packages may use /usr/bin/wine and may even be coinstalled.) I'm glad to see that this part works as intended.

/usr/bin/wine64-stable fails because of missing files.
Should /usr/bin/wine64-stable be there at all?

I don't know if we really need /usr/bin/wine64, or could just go with /usr/bin/wine and the rest in /usr/lib/wine. But if we want /usr/bin/wine64 then we also need /usr/bin/wine64-stable (for the alternatives system).

Currently this is a link to /usr/lib/wine/wine64. Current maintainers may replace it with a wrapper script or provide the link suggested previously. (Or figure out why the -stable suffix in the link is now expected by the binary, while it wasn't in the past.)

For now, I don't think I can help further, back to retirement
