Do you really waste that much more time? Aftrer the first
build, you can still build multiple binary packages in the same
dpkg-buildpackage; you do not need to sign any more than you needed
The person installing the packages could even be grateful if
they have a farm of machines, and only install the docs on one
Frankly, I thik the overhead is rather minimal.
