That kind of helps if the maintainer has listed a tree, but gives
wrong results if not. And you still have to figure out who owns which
tree. That's not hard, but it's not scriptable.

IMO, we should reserve 'M:' for maintainers with trees and use 'R:'
driver maintainers. That's redefining M as "maintainer" rather than
"mail patches to". You could still have both for a entry so you can
know who to go bug when your patch hasn't been applied.
