Cannot have links inside sourcecode sections

Issue #14667 open

created an issue

I'm trying to implement links (both external and internal) in source code blocks in reStructuredText, but they are just rendered verbatim:

.. sourcecode:: c++

    bool hello(`argtype <argtype_>`_ arg) const

But it just renders like this:

bool hello(`argtype <argtype_>`_ arg) const

I'd be happy to forgo the syntax highlighting, just to have a shaded box the text goes in, how can I do that?
