Automatically turn URLs in comments into hyperlinks

If a URL is pasted into a comment and posted, the URL text is not automatically turned into a link like in most comment engines, which is inconsistent with the behaviour of the idea body.

    if people hit "return" it automatically converts it to a link, but this is the #1 thing that I see folks forget to do.  So many comments have links that are not actually turned into links, so I end up having to copy and paste them into the browser's addess bar.  it's pretty annoying....
