What are the relative merits of the various automated package testing
tools, from the perspective of someone maintaining packages for Debian
using their own system resources?

That is, if I'm maintaining packages for Debian and want to build and
test them in an easy and automated manner, what tools are available
(‘pbuilder’, ‘sbuild’, ‘cowbuilder’, …) and for each of them why would I
choose that one?
