Yes, since it only depends on "wine" and a few other things already in
universe.  My packages are completely backwards compatible with the
Debian ones.

On that note, I really, really want to know exactly why they're still
not in universe.  They're more current, I can actively test them, and
they don't confuse users by having only a partial and broken Wine
install.  I still haven't gotten a straight answer from anyone other
than "you're not the Debian maintainer"

I'd like to maintain them personally.  I even got approved as an MOTU
back in the days of yore, although due to lack of keysigning I haven't
passed the final muster yet.  I'm really looking forward to building
more packages based around the wine packages, but I can't do that if we
refuse to use them.
