[Sorry for the slowness, I'm kind of tuned out this week]

I guess we could do that as a short-term thing.

In truth, though, this thing is a database; printing it out linearly is
perhaps not the best thing we could do.  There should be better ways we
could provide access to it.

Also, that file is nearly 18K lines long.  If some unsuspecting person
generates a PDF and prints it, they're going to get something along the
lines of 300 pages of MAINTAINERS, which may not quite be what they had
in mind.  It costs (almost) nothing to put that into HTML output, but
other formats could be painful.

So I dunno, we need to think this through a bit...
