i dont think its a good idea to add another url attribute. (And you would have to add a grapher_icon too).
I was thinking about something like that in Thruk too, but i would like to have a more generic one. For example
a _HTML_SHORT and _HTML_LONG custum variables. This way it would be still compatible to nagios and you dont
have to add another attribute for every single link. The next person wants to have a wiki_url with wiki_icon and
so on... till we end up with 20 different *_urls and *_icons.
The _HTML_SHORT is for the status_detail page and the _HTML_LONG is for the extinfo page. This way you would have
the full flexibility of html without the workarounds of using a grapher_url with quotes.

Would be nice if we find a solution for both, Icinga and Thruk.
