auto-link URLs in userpic comments

Title
auto-link URLs in userpic comments

Short, concise description of the idea
Currently, any URLs in userpic comments don't automatically turn into links. I think they should.

Full description of the idea
Sometimes I put a URL in the userpic comment, for example to link to the image source. I noticed that it didn't get marked up as a link. <lj user> tags do auto-format, so there's at least some precedent for markup there.

An ordered list of benefits
  • Convenience of having a link (instead of manually entering in the address bar)
  • Seems like it would be expected behavior, at least to me.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • Slippery slope to allowing other forms of HTML in userpic comments
  • It's a change in current behavior, so people would have to adjust.
  • I'm not actually sure what function causes auto-links; it might not be trivial to implement this. Maybe.
