Absolute URLs using MVC (without extension methods)

Do you need to generate absolute URLs within your MVC application?

Often this will be in the form of URLs used outside of the web-browser such as those used within Atom Publishing Protocol collections or maybe links that are going to be sent out in emails. Basically, anything where the regular relative URL won’t do.

A quick search of Google will turn up a number of blog posts or forum answers showing how to do this by creating extension methods for the Url helper class but really, everything that is needed is already baked into the MVC framework already … and I’ve only just realized it after using it since the CTP releases!
