Include URL to email when adding from Gmail

nathan.yergler says:
The new version of GMail provides a URL for individual messages (this makes forward/back work as you'd expect). It'd be extremely handy to populate the URL field for a task with that URL when making an email into a Task. That way I have more than just the subject line to go on (and RTM becomes a little more integrated into my daily workflow).

This feature would make the gmail extension about 2x as useful

If this gets implemented, please ensure it works with hosted gmail eg as well as

I also just came to post this as an excellent idea - and I'm sad its been here for 3.5 years!!

Alternative, if its easier, would be to add the body of the email as a Note, but i think the URL idea is neater and more useful overall as it gives access to the whole conversation rather than just 1 email.
