Well, including Wine in the default install would be a waste of space for a
number of users, like myself, who no longer run any Windows programs.  I
would have to un-install it.  Meanwhile, there are other projects that would
be more universally usable and might make a good fit on an Ubuntu CD.  I
suppose it might not be bad to have Wine included on an Ubuntu DVD, but not
a basic install CD.
