So I'm generally in favor of moving things over to RST, but I have to ask:
what's the payoff for doing that with the MAINTAINERS file? I *suppose*
it's documentation, but it's also really a flat-file database of
who-to-email information. I'm not sure I see the value of including it in
the docs? What am I missing here?
