    I trimmed cc's and added Andrew Morton and Florian Mickler.
    First thread link for them:

    I use get_maintainer to find email addresses with
    "git send-email --cc-cmd=" but sure it could be extended
    to find some other new information in the MAINTAINERS file.

    Anyway, I think that get_maintainers isn't the proper tool
    to rewrite commit subject lines, though it could certainly
    do the lookup of a key in the MAINTAINERS file.

    Maybe add a new MAINTAINERS section line something like:
    "C: CommitSubjectGrammarStyle"
    where CommitSubjectGrammarStyle is something more
    information rich than "style 1", "style 2".

    Perhaps you'll propose a grammar to convert path to header
    and go through and add these "C:" style entries to the
    sections you maintain.

    Also, what would you expect the output to be when a single
    patch modified files from 2 subsystems that use different

    cheers, Joe
