    Extension to save typing and prevent hard-coding of base URLs in the reST

    This adds a new config value called ``extlinks`` that is created like this::

       extlinks = {'exmpl': ('', prefix), ...}

    Now you can use e.g. :exmpl:`foo` in your documents.  This will create a
    link to ````.  The link caption depends on the
    *prefix* value given:

    - If it is ``None``, the caption will be the full URL.
    - If it is a string (empty or not), the caption will be the prefix prepended
      to the role content.

    You can also give an explicit caption, e.g. :exmpl:`Foo <foo>`.
