I don't like reading annotated email names myself.

As the coverage of file patterns in MAINTAINERS is
now pretty good, the --git results are less useful.

I'd much rather turn off --git as a default, or change
get_maintainers to add git signers only when there's no
specifically listed maintainer for a particular file.
