Linkifying URLs in plain textby grinder (Bishop)

grinder has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
It's Friday afternoon and my brain is fried.
I have a boatload of plain text that contains things that look like http links. If I find one, then I want to wrap it in HTML anchors.
I don't think there's a module that does this, but I welcome suggestions. Otherwise, the spec is in the test below. If someone could show me the error of my ways I'd be a happy man.
Bonus points for converting the first link (http://www.example.com) to http://www.example.com/ in the HREF (add the omitted slash).
