resource hog?? 

If you refer to the fact, that dpkg-buildpackage cleans and rebuilds
everything and that it can take a lot of time, then please stop using
arguments that do not hold at all. you can call arbitrary debian/rules
targets with dpkg-buildpackage (without calling the clean rule
before-hand) and I pointed that to you multiple times already.

It's in dpkg 1.15.x (in experimental right now, in sid this week) and
it's the --target option.
