Markdown URL parsing problems

Markdown doesn't understand the URL above properly, preferring to treat init as bold text rather than a filename. Github Flavored Markdown might get this right - their docs mention single underscores but not doubles.

    Ah yep, we work around this for italic stuff (test_method_name), but apparently not the double underscores. Yay markdown.

    Add a http:// prefix to it so that the auto linker picks it up.

    I changed the formatter so that the autolinker runs before markdown, and now it seems to work ^

    We're adding GFM support too, but slightly tweaked. I didn't like how it handled linebreaks.

    Edit: My Github support issue regarding this problem.

    Okay, so if you see on the github support issue, I still have some formatting stuff to tweak. Yay for regex.
