opening links in new windows is a usability DON'T. says
Jakob Nielsen [#]_:

Opening up new browser windows is like a vacuum
cleaner sales person who starts a visit by emptying an
ash tray on the customer's carpet. Don't pollute my
screen with any more windows, thanks (particularly
since current operating systems have miserable window
management). If I want a new window, I will open it myself!

please let the user decide where she wants the link to
open. patch attached.

thank you!
