Formating of comments with URLs containing parentheses

Description

Some URLs have parentheses in them, e.g. references to documents using the DOI standard:
http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/S0925-7721(00)00015-8

now when these are submitted in comments the automagic link detection will brake the <a tag at the first parenthesis and the link will be broken.

there is a dup of this one related to pinging not behaving well, with a candidate patch that enforces rfc compliance for urls
