What about opening links in posts (like this one) in new window? Users of my sphene based forum are asking about this and I've seen that a lot of other message boards have links displayed this way.

IMO this should be at last config option. Necessary change is rather simple, in contrib/libs/common/text/bbcode.py

return '<a href="' + escape(url) + '">' + linktext + '</a>'

might be changed to:
return '<a target="_blank" href="' + escape(url) + '">' + linktext + '</a>'

i think it would be cool to have this whole string as configuration setting . or at least the attributes of the tag..
because i could imagine that some message board want to open links in new windows, while others don't.. and again others might want to add a rel="nofollow"..
