Problem: target="_blank"
Description: I tried adding this attribute to a comment link and it didn't work. I'm guessing your filter code discards html element attributes. For hyperlink elements, can you insert (if not found) the `target="_blank"` attribute so that all comment and post text links open in a new tab (or window or what have you depending on default browser settings)?

Of course I can just right-click on a link and open in a new tab/window, but this extra shortcut feature of just clicking on a link to open in a new tab rather than navigating out of sensibleendowment would be pretty swell.

I'll add the target attribute to the html whitelist later this week but I'm not going to have it autoadd. That's up to the discretion of the people making the links.
