agreed, but when you install wine on a 64-bit distro, then wine should be now (as version 1.2 claims this feature) capable for both: 32- and 64-bit windows. At least as an install option with binary packages.

Please let me quote from the wine wiki:

"Building a shared WoW64 setup

The previous paragraph explains how to build completely separate 32- and 64-bit trees. A more useful setup is to build a shared Wow64 installation, which allows 32-bit programs to invoke 64-bit ones and the other way around. [Idea] 

This again requires an out-of-tree build, with two separate build trees:"

Can't see what speak against delivering this prebuild.
