Wine using Mono could work, but I'm not sure people really want to have
both installed (and we don't want Wine and Mono fighting over EXE file

The simplest solution is just to pull Debians helper thingy upstream and
recommend packagers depend on that in their packages, IMHO. Wine may need
to use Mono at some point but it's been years and not many apps have a
heavy .NET dependency yet.
