I second this. It took me a moment to realize not only that said Paste
URI/Copy URI items didn't do what you propose and then to realize that, as
far as a quick glance to the codebase allowed, surf has no way of doing
this. But it is an obvious need: sometimes you want to cut into x buffer
the link's url without actually navigating to the site, e.g.\ when you want
to navigate to the site via wget or some other agent.
