I noticed that this has been mentioned on Ask Sage, and I have found that users of my site do not understand Mardkown. Mostly, this does not matter, but they do need to link to things, and the result is lots of plain text URLs (lots is relative given that the site is new and low traffic). Auto linking would be really useful.
Done hopefully, please drop a note if there are any issues. Below are some tests.
Also for the sage people I've added an autolinker to their bug tracker. A phrase "ticket #" will be interpreted as a link to the tracker.
