It is not a big time investment. The most time-consuming work consists in
regular cleanups (removing bogus entries and key signing requests that have 
been satisfied). Maybe once per year, taking several hours of work (since
you will have to exchange emails with requesters and dd's). Besides that,
there are from time to time people calling in for help since they cannot
find a dd to sign their key. This doesn't happen very often, maybe 3 to 5
times a year at most. It such a case you have to consult the debian db and find
a dd sufficinetly close to the requester. Not much work either, but in
general it takes exchanging emails over a period of some days or weeks.

Even if it is not a huge amount of work it would be useful to have a second
person on the job.
