We should decide what we want to use as link text when trying to format URLs as rich wikitext.
We have several options:
- Do nothing (that's what we currently do)
- Strip the https?://, but use the rest as is, that's what most current browsers do. (That should not apply to any other protocols.)
- Strip more of the URL or allow other fancy things
Personally I lean towards #1, but I can also see the point of being consistent with browsers and other web applications here (that would mean #2).
