IMHO there should be a meta-package that is named wine which depends on
everything wine, but which itself doesn't contain any files. That is
also how it seems to have been done in the latest wine in debian, so it
is no problem anymore that their wine is split up in many packages. But
users who know what they do can still choose the subset they want.
