application launch URLs not rendered as link
There are URLs that launch 3rd party application when clicked on in the browser.
Redmine's wiki doesn't convert them into clickable link.
<a href="ea:1|50194|1|1607%203">Document X</a>
launches application called EasyArchive and shows document identified by the numbers following
Maybe feature #2084 can fix this problem, since there is no simple conclusion how such links in general can be distinguished from regular text.

I have marked this as defect since something like
ea:1|50194|1|1607%203 is regular URL handled by browsers. So when I enter in the Wiki text like
"Link to document":ea:1|50194|1|1607%203
it should be formatted to
<a href="ea:1|50194|1|1607%203" class="external">ea:1|50194|1|1607%203</a>
<a href="ea:1|50194|1|1607%203" class="external">Link to document</a>
like all other
ftp:// links are.
So in general the formatter should recognize not only
/ftps?:\/\/.*/ links, but also
#2084 can solve this issue, but as a workaround (and with much more coding work).
