I am afraid bcde44ed7d2a[1] removed references to ${lk_path} and made
git_maintainer.pl look for the files in the directory the script is
invoked from.

Andrew points out[2] that some we might need to include .scripts
too. Where do we expect the config files to be (do comment)?

. - current directory (?)
${lk_path}/ - the top directory of source tree
${HOME}/ - per-user
${lk_path}/scripts - how is this dfferent from ${lk_path}?
${lk_path}/.scripts - Andrew says someone might have started using it

I'd also add in this commit or another
${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/get_maintainers. However, I think files in this
directory should be named conf and ignore instead of
.get_maintainer.conf and get_maintainer.ignore (respectively).
