I also didn't change my mind that maintaining just one python script is
easier than maintaining a plead of python scripts with almost identical

In any case, if we're willing to have one Python script per each
different non-Python parser, it helps if the source code of such extensions
would be identical, except for the command line that will run the script,
as, if we find a bug on one such script, the same bug fix could be applied
to the other almost identical ones.

Agreed. get_maintainer.pl is indeed the best place to put it. I wrote
it this separate script just for a proof of concept, whose goal is to test
if the kernel-cmd extension would be properly parsing the ReST output,
and to identify what sort of output would fit best for the MAINTAINERS
