Patch submission done well IMO would be something like github PRs, with
a bot that auto-tags people based on a MAINTAINERS-style opt-in for
reviewing certain paths within the tree.

I don't think get_reviewers.pl improves the git-send-email situation
compared to maintainers needing to manage email filters.  It's not
consistent, so you need to indoctrinate new submitters (more barriers to
entry!) and maintainers need to maintain their mail filters anyway.
