Plain URLs should render as links in preview

If write a markdown Question like:    
^ plain link

The preview doesn't render this as a hyperlink -- but the question, once submitted, doe have a hyperlink here. A live preview of the link would be helpful. (This is what StackExchange does, for example.)
