Cannot interact with mentions

Bug Description

If a user is mentioned in a post, I would expect clicking on his/her name brings me to the profile page. Instead nothing happens.

Also, clicking the avatar brings me to the web-version of the post. I would expect that this brings me to the profile page too.

Thought a little about this.
An easy fix would be to encode mentions as links in the protocols. However, that way they would open the web profile of the specific person.
Another -- proper -- solution would be to expose the mentions a property of the status update, but that would mean changing the data model.

My thoughts are that I refuse to change the data model ;-)

If you propose a branch where you linkify the mentions, I'll accept it.

There isn't even a way to query profiles in friends. or is there?

No, there isn't. The way to query profiles is to open the user's profile page in a browser ;-)

The branch linkifies the mentions. Hopefully we can add support for profiles in 14.10 :)
