dpkg "dry-run" mode?

Maybe this is FAQ. I don't have a potato machine handy where I
work. In general, if developers want to try installing packages they
made for "unstable" to check if it installs okay, is there a machine
to do that? 

I know pandora runs potato - but without superuser privileges, is
there a way to "dry-run" dpkg for installation problems?  Or is the
only option to actually upgrade my machine to potato to try to see if
my potato packages install properly? Any suggestions appreciated.
