Comment (by davidbaumwald):

 @audrasjb That sounds fine.  Could use the `$authordata` global.  This
 would make all user data available to the filter callback.

 One other concern I have here is potential confusion with the existing
 /author-template.php#L372 author_link] filter.  I think renaming this new
 filter to `author_url_link_html` would be more appropriate.

 I'm working on adding some unit tests for this new filter.  I'll throw up
 a PR for easier review.
