 I'm not a big fan of target=_blank. Users should be able to decide whether
 they want a link opened in a new window. I'd be OK with one of the

 - filter the attributes used to build the link, so that 'target=_blank'
 could be added with a filter
 - have a specific "bp_xprofile_url_target_blank" filter for URL fields (or
 something like that), which would default to false
 - maybe, just maybe, a UI toggle for the admin, which would default to
 unchecked. (Gasp! Usually I don't like adding toggles, but "Open in a new
 window" seems pretty transparent and potentially useful here.)

 but I definitely would not want to force it, or have it be the default.

 I'd be glad to hear others' thoughts.
