 I use quite often the function make_clickable() but i can't use it like i
 would because it does not allow to add the target attribute.

 The patch attached adds a second optional attribute to make_clickable() to
 allow to add this attribute by passing a bool value to the function (false
 by default).

 If true, it will perform a str_replace on the HTML anchor before to return
 it to add the target="_blank" attribute.
