Timeless, can you summarize what needs to be done here? 
What should be done here is when an URI scheme indicator immediately follows an
opening angle bracket, everything between that opening angle bracket and the
closing one should be linked, regardless if it matches what we expect a URL to
look like.  Whitespace within that construct is supposed to be unwrapped and
collapsed for the contents of the href="".  If there is no closing angle
bracket, we fall back on our existing "if it looks like a URL" matching mechanism.

Same goes for a URL surrounded by double-quote marks, according to the RFC.
