This will never be a feature, as half the point of a code block, in Markdown, is to opt out of Markdown syntax recognition.

I would agree, this is a job for HTML (or, perhaps, a post-Markdown linkifying script, depending on your use case).

And, I also realize that what I'm asking for is diametrically opposed to what a Code Block is meant to be (even one with syntax highlighting. It's a "WYSIWYG" functionality, and I'm trying to circumvent it (at least partially).
