[Lazarus] Testing Lazarus development version easily under Wine

I don't have Windows right now.
I found out an easy way to test my development repository changes also
Lazarus runs amazingly well with Wine.
I installed the latest Lazarus release Windows version on Linux. It
opens with Wine automatically, no problems.
Then I ran a bash script (copied below and attached).
It deletes the source directories and replaces them with symbolic
links to my development sources.
Then I started the Windows version again. It complains about wrong
version and a missing package but that is OK.
Then I rebuilt it from Tools -> Configure Build Lazarus ... and I have
the latest Windows version of Lazarus running on Linux! Absolutely
I can check that my changes don't break the Windows version already
before committing them.

# Do not delete already linked directories.
if [[ -L "$LazDir" ]]; then
echo "Directory $LazDir is already linked"
echo "Linking directory $LazDir to development version"
# Delete a directory from Windows installation.
rm -rf $LazDir
# Replace it with a symbolic link to Linux development version.
ln -s $LazDevelPath/$LazDir $LazDir
