If you want it you need to compile one of the versions (likely 1.0.1) by hand and use some scripts to launch the old version. Further I would use different Wine prefixes for 1.0 and 1.2 (else Wine takes long to startup when you swtich between the two).

You can certainly run multiple versions of Wine with different
wineprefixes easily enough. (For "carefully script things yourself"
values of "easy.") This is a good way to do testing of Wine while
keeping a "stable" installation, by the way.

(Is this a FAQ yet?)
