Bug Description

In Evolution, Firefox,and other programs, when you bring up the context menu for a URL you get some sort of "Open Link" command, but you also get a "Copy Link Location" command. This copies the URL to the clipboard, which of course makes it easy to paste it elsewhere.

Right now GTG just lets you click on a URL in the task editor to launch it, but there's no direct way to copy the URL to the clipboard (selecting by dragging or shift-arrows is cumbersome). It would be nice to have a "Copy Link Location" command if you bring up the context menu while you right-click on a URL.

We would work on it during a big task editor rework which is proposed as a GSoC idea.

I've sent a pull request:

It also adds an "Open Link" command as well, as it seems to be a common practice in other applications (Tomboy, for example).
