UPDATE:

A probably better way to do this (thanks to nekuy and lmdeman) :

  1. Add this line to your apt repositories :
    deb http://frickelplatz.de/debian/ sid main
  2. Add the following code to your /etc/apt/preferences file to activate apt-pinning:
    Package: *
    Pin: origin frickelplatz.de
    Pin-Priority: 200

    Package: wine
    Pin: origin frickelplatz.de
    Pin-Priority: 800

  3. $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install frickelplatz-archive-keyring frickelplatz-keyring frickelplatz-keyrings
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install wine

To install PlayOnLinux:

  1. $ wget -q "http://deb.playonlinux.com/public.gpg" -O- | sudo apt-key add -
    $ sudo wget http://deb.playonlinux.com/playonlinux_squeeze.list -O /etc/apt/sources.list.d/playonlinux.list
    $ sudo apt-get update
    $ sudo apt-get install playonlinux

  1. Get the architecture:
    $ ARCH=`uname -m | sed -e s/x86_64/amd64/ -e s/i.86/i386/`
  2. Download the packages corresponding to this arch:
    $ wget -r -A "*_$ARCH.deb" http://dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/
  3. Intall packages:
    $ sudo dpkg -i dev.carbon-project.org/debian/wine-unstable/*.deb
  4. Install dependencies:
    $ sudo apt-get install -f
  5. Delete packages from the HD:
    $ rm -rf dev.carbon-project.org/

NB:
To uninstall a software:
$ wine uninstaller
