Sounds like a good idea. A good way to figure out reviewers for a 
particular directory might be to identify members in the community who 
have contributed and/or reviewed more than X percentage of patches in 
that particular directory. X should be significant and a good starting 
value can be 25.

In the case of we not having even a single individual who exceeds X, we 
can pick up the top 2-3 reviewers/code contributors.
