Using the term 'prepackaged binary' doesn't make the package suddenly valid
for WineHQ bugzilla, since it clearly contains not supported patches. Same
applies for instance to crossover, ies4linux, wineskin or any other.

Once again, packages with custom patches can't be supported through WineHQ
bugzilla for obvious reasons. If the packager knows what he/she is dooing by
including such patches - he/she should take the full resposibility for that,
including accepting bug reports for his package. If he/she doesn't want to
carry the support burden then using Wine source without any custom patches
is the way to go.
