[wp-hackers] small change to link editor in post editor

One of my clients is trying to change the default behavior of the editor.

Here is their request "All I am wanting is to have you pre-set any hyperlinks to open in a new window. In other words, instead of having the default target set to "Not set" like it currently is, please have it default to "Open Link a New Window" so that we do not have to make that extra step every time we hyperlink text"

Is this possible with a plugin or do I have to hack the core.

I have been able to add items to the target dropdown menu with the following in my functions.php. but no way to set the default to _blank.

function fb_change_mce_buttons( $initArray ) {
    //@see http://tinymce.moxiecode.com/wiki.php/Configuration
    $initArray['theme_advanced_link_targets'] = 'someframe=Some frame;otherframe=Some other frame';
    return $initArray;

add_filter('tiny_mce_before_init', 'fb_change_mce_buttons');
