I'm confused by this bug report.  ttf-liberation is Architecture: all,
which means that the same package is installable (and relevant) on both
i386 and amd64 packages.

Could you give a transcript of the failure you're seeing when trying to
deal with libwine-unstable:i386?  It would be good to see:

 * what you're doing specifically
 * exactly what the error message is

fwiw, ttf-liberation is a dummy package that just points to
fonts-liberation at this point (also Architecture: all); at some point,
libwine-unstable should probably update their dependencies to point to
fonts-liberation instead.
