I like this idea. Is there any standard or convention for choosing  
the label we use for such a URL?

Another thing, related to the Links API ... this would allow it to  
distinguish between an internal drupal path and an actual relative  
URL. As is, anything without an http:// (or ftp:// or mailto: , etc.)  
is considered a drupal path, so there is no way to use an actual  
relative URL. Syscrusher, what do you think?

If we can agree on the label to use, I'll create an input filter that  
runs these through url(). I might even be able to come up with a  
patch for the Links package of Syscrusher likes the idea.
