root-relative links should be converted to absolute in rss feeds
|Reported by:||digitalgimpus||Owned by:||markjaquith|
currently bloggers may use relative links to link to a past post, or some other page in their site:
that is invalid in a feed, as all URI's need to be absolute (for rather obvious reasons).
The correct fix would be to find relative links in a post, and convert them to absolute.
This is important where full-text feeds are provided, as the links break. Some tools automatically assume and fix it, but some do not. feedvalidator.org says it's bad.
