Default Link Profile Location to Google MapQuestBurgsVille

Is it possible to make the location field in our profiles a link that goes to Google Maps and search for whatever text is entered there?

or at least make it hotlinkable so that something like this can be inserted...

[ URL="http://maps.google.com/maps?q=New+Era,+MI+49446,+United+States+of+America &sa=X&oi=map&ct=title"]New Era[/URL]

without the space at the beginning though

so that in the under my name is would just be New Era and you can click on it

That would be good. Then you wouldn't be locked into any particular map site.
