After doing it for years, it can become very much quicker.
With properly designed upstream source(nice build system, configurable
installation, DESTDIR support), making a deb can be done in a few hours.
Lately, I have even been creating all of debian/* using no templates at all,
and doing everything from scratch.
Of course, this has no bearing on the discussion at hand.
