That was already handled.

If many people complain, it will get fixed (maybe), if no one
complains it will not get fixed.  And advising the Wine project will
not get it fixed.  So, one message to Canonical becomes many and the
package distribution gets updated, no messages and it stays the way it
is.  The issue is not the Wine project's to fix.
