Ok, now try to convince Red Hat, SuSE, TurboLinux, Mandrake, Lindows to 
fix their packages and release updates to their wine package now. 

And I'm sure you can overwrite what other packages do, but that's not a 
real clean solution and you may not have control what an upgrade will do.

"It works" doesn't necessarily make it the best solution. A shell wrapper 
works too.
