Markdown long urls that play nicely with 80-character line length

You can quicky shorten (wrap) lines to 80 characters using gq format tool. I'm using par for this purpose.

gqG

(reformat text to the end of file)

It works OK, but it's still not readable. Fortunately with Dr. Bunsen formd tool you can switch between reference and inline urls:
