You really don't seem to get this? We're an open source group using clients
that are not centrally controlled. You might be able to write your own
client that would place the link in, but it would be impossible to force ALL
clients to put a link in.

However, you could use the MIME extensions and place a clickable URL in.

Cabbar appears to be the most popular client of current. New clients for
various platforms are in various steps of development.

I doubt you'd have very many people sign up.
