RSLight used to have clickable links in message bodies, and it worked
somewhat, but some recent mods to clean up formatting required me to remove
that feature.

I've now re-written the code for clickable links, and it's hopefully better
than it was in the past. It will never be perfect, as every newsreader
seems to have it's own way to present, encapsulate or whatever it wants to
do to try to display a link. But it is better than it was in the past.

Current protocols recognized are:
(https?|ftp|scp|news|gopher|gemini|telnet)

Any others that I should consider?

It is good to see the truck is still rolling.

mailto://shouts@me.

hkp:// is for PGP keyservers.

doi:// is useful for pointing to eprints.

spartan:// is another smol text protocol. I never use it.

There are more I can think of. A few of these are probably not
advisable, but some of them are useful. A lot of people use applications
with edonkey, magnet and torrent links. IRC is still widely used. Web
sockets is gaining traction. I'm just tossing all of them out there.

(git|hkp|ipfs|irc|irc6|ircs|magnet)

(mailto|ntp|rss|sftp|shttp|sips|spartan|ssh)
