Replace trilogy raw links with the current question title?

It seems pretty useless in comments to read "have a look at https://meta.stackoverflow.com/question/number/..." and just where the title might start it will be replaced by an ellipsis. Why not have the link be replaced? I know hovering the link shows the title, but since the only information provided by the link is about to which SOFU-site it is, the URL itself seems pretty useless to me. Additionally, the title might be prepended with a small [SO] etc tag.

  • This sits square between this request, which targets all internal links in the post body as well, and this implemented request, which targeted just automatically generated comments by the duplication closing process.

  • @Grace Note: I didn't mention the post body since the links there don't suffer from ellipsis. But since that request is there already (thanks for the link) and mine is just a subset, I'll vote to close as dupe Jul 10, 2010 at 10:39
