There is 1:1 mapping between Gecko and Wine version. You won't be able 
to use current Wine with the new Gecko nor future Wine with current 
Gecko. And doing Gecko release is quite not that simple to do it for 
such a minor change.

BTW, the current plan is to do the new Gecko release together with 
Firefox 6 release, which is about 6 weeks from now. The first beta 
version should be out in a week or two, depending on how Firefox beta 
will behave.
