Comment (by Viper007Bond):

 One of their developers contacted me to let me know that oEmbed support
 was added today: https://github.com/reddit/reddit/wiki/oEmbed

 However for now they only support embedding comments, i.e. a URL that
 looks like this:


 Should we use regex to only match those supported URLs? Something like


 Or should we just send all Reddit URLs to them and let unsupported URLs
 get back a 404? The advantage of that is when they roll out support for
 more embed types, we aren't required to update things on our end. The
 drawback is we'd be making unneeded HTTP requests.
