I should step up here and offer to take over the whole thing.  I'd like
for the Ubuntu and Debian packages to be as identical as possible.  Many
of the issues are the same as well.

I will admit I don't use Debian much but that can easily change. In
general Ubuntu developers like for things to be done in Debian when
possible, since we share so much.

For instance we still don't have a package making use of Wine 1.2's 64
bit support because of the multiarch situation (which I believe is
finally starting to turn around now).
