But some terminal emulator are not doing the correct thing [1].
And an option to turn off/on the hyperlink seems useful.
I mean even for terminal emulators correctly supporting the OSC, I
would find useful to display the hyperlink; it eases the copy/paste.
For example, I am using xterm, and I would like to turn on/off the
Generation file hyperlink and commit url. (well, so my tiny patch in
sent to this thread ;-).
