Deleting Swaret files in /var/swaret??


I use swaret for updating my installed packages. I was cleaning up my system and noticed that swaret has used like 800MB in /var/swaret with various packages. Can I delete these files (is this just like a temp directory) safely and not mess up swaret or my updates?

thank you very much. I have another thing that is eating alot of space... maybe you could help with that too. I have wine installed and its taking up alot of space in several locations:
-> /home/[user]/usr/lib/wine 182 MB
-> /usr/local/lib/wine 189 MB
-> /usr/lib/wine 182 MB
Are these files in these locations just temp files left over from when I ran windows applications in wine? Can they be deleted, or are they needed for wine to run?
