I agree but I can see how that would be complicated.  Patchwork would
have to know how to "bend" rules because a maintainer in one project
might not be a maintainer in another.

E.g. You and I are maintainers in linuxppc-dev, but not netdev.  So
delegating a patch that is on a netdev list to us would seem odd.
