link management bug

Description

When you enter a link as "www.XXXX.XXX" and neglect to add the http://, it displays the link as "http://blog.domain/www.XXXX.XXX". Many people enter url's this way, so I would suggest changing the link displayer so the default was not to display an undeclared URI as a subdirectory of the blog, but rather so it, by default, added http:// and www. to the beginning of the string as needed(as most browsers do). By my guess, a lot more people who enter a link without fully declaring it mean for it to be http than mean it to be a subdirectory of their site.

Maybe this has already been reported (I've seen this occurrence on a couple of blogs) or maybe there's a reason to have it the way it is, I don't know. just giving my 2 cents.
