Yes, and we could version check to decide what to do.
I.e., i think it would be better to act as an input filter and
feed into Pod:: what can be handled, converting to "L<scheme:>
(Text)" or likewise as necessary, instead of introducing
a requirement onto a specific, possibly non-standard package
However, if it's not so hard to extend or hook L<>, or to make the
Pod parser -- but even more the Pod output layer -- recognize
"this is a hyperlink", then that would also be worth the effort
