I really want to open this and unpack it and sort it, but from what I've heard, it's a sizable undertaking so I'm a bit hesitant.

About how long on average would it take to inventory and all that stuff?

Took me approximately one hour yesterday.
For the Commander Pack on the other hand, it's like 5 minutes (most stuff is already in place :-) )

Unpacking and sorting didn't take nearly as long as figuring out how to reload the box AND get the sleeve back on.

From opening the box to 1st turn (including unpacking, punching and going through the rules for the basic game) about an hour and a half

Yah, sounds like it'll have to wait for another day then. I don't have the time today to unpack it.

Thanks everyone.

Here is a link to a thread my wife made showing how we (really, how she) have the came sorted/packed so that everything fits back together well and without putting any stress on the box, components, or sleeve.

This one really seems to need a third-party or homemade insert. I, of course, would like inserts for other games, but this one's pretty messy.

Unpacking, sorting, bagging and (re)reading the rules, 2 to 3 hours

About the same. Lots of cross-referencing components in the book since there are so many modules and alternate/duplicate/blank bits included. It isn't terribly intuitive what goes with what. And getting it back into the box is a real challenge.

I had watched Rhado's run through and read the rules before it arrived, which probably saved a bit of time

Then anothe 1/2 hour after I went out and bought some more suitable containers and repacked
THat was me only readnig the setup rules, so I could put the initial player starting items together in baggies.

I don't know how long it took, but since the punchboards are mostly identical you can save some time by 'punching' two at a time. Or 3 if you feel really adventurous :-)
