Ha! So you do indeed use it in a way I wasn't expecting :S
Thanks for the explanation.

Joe, would you be okay to add a "big fat warning" to get_maintainer
when people try to use the -f flag? Maybe we can also change the message
that's displayed when the script is run without arguments to not
mention -f?

We're getting quite a few fixes which don't CC author, I'm guessing
Jiasheng's approach may be a common one.
