Ctrl-return does not traverse link

Bug Description

Observed behaviour: ctrl-return while the caret is within a link insert a newline.

Expected behaviour: ctrl-return while the caret is within a link should traverse the link.

Justification: There does not appear to be a way to traverse a link using the keyboard and no mouse at the moment. In Tomboy, you can traverse links with the keyboard by pressing ctrl-return.

By "traverse", do you mean "opening the link in a browser" ?

If yes, I agree that it would be a nice feature to have.
