Add skype URI scheme support for wiki links

DoubleG
created an issue

It would be nice to add Skype URIs scheme rendering for wiki links.

<a href=" skype:<username|phonenumber>[?[add|call|chat|sendfile|userinfo]] ">SkypeUser</a>

Now we have this is editor

[SkypeUser](skype:skypeuser?chat)

And this in rendered wiki page

<a href="">SkypeUser</a>

    We only allow the following schemes: ftp, ftps, http, https. No other schemes are supported as they can pose a security risk.

    For instance, using javascript: would allow an attacker to run arbitrary javascript in a user's browser. As it's hard to reliably determine all possible attack vectors for every scheme and how they may be handled in each browser, we err on the side of caution and do not allow any other scheme.

    I hope this clarifies things a bit.
