I'm looking for the ability to remove fully formed HTML links so

<a href="http://www.domain.com/">Anchor Text</a>

and derivatives, to something like

http://www.domain.com/ : Anchor Text

I'm using a plugin (http://ducedo.com/remove-links-in-comments/) that
prevents text URLs from being converted to full links 

WordPress by default converts http://www.domain.com/ to

<a href="http://www.domain.com/"

The above plugin turns that off, so http://www.domain.com/ stays
http://www.domain.com/ (just text, so no nofollow links).

If I can get the above working (stripping HTML from fully formed
links), after WordPress 3.1 is released my theme will only need the
plugin above to have a WordPress site with no nofollow links. Also
going to give the option to follow links as well, so the above filter
will probably come in handy.

Not started the above yet (I don't expect to have any big problems
stripping the HTML code from links), still scratching my head over
removing the nofollow from the reply to comments links (not very
important as 3.1 fixes the problem). I'm sure you already know the
filter you suggested won't work on the nofollow of the reply to
comments links because the nofollow attribute is hard coded in
/wp-includes/comment-template.php was hoping I could use a simple
str_replace on the Reply links, but not getting it to work.
