	In most cases you can install Ubuntu package(s) in Debian. One of many ways to 
do that is to download debs you want to install and then run:

sudo dpkg -i /path(s)/to/debs/you/want/to/install

	Personally I'm compiling Wine myself - it takes only few minutes and gives 
more possibilities (like testing patches or applying hacks to source code) and 
also saves traffic (with git you can download only updates and not whole 
package). Of course if you never compiled anything yourself you better install 
binary packages.
