If you want to try it, add to local.php:

    $LinkPatterns[780]["\\[\\[#$FragmentPattern\\]\\]"] =
      "<span id='$1' class='$1'><a href='#$1'>&#167;</a></span>";

This recognizes [[##anchor]] and produces a link sort of like what
you indicated on the test page.  I chose &#167; ('?') as the link text,
but you can put <img...> or whatever you want, and I used <span> instead
of <div> because [[##anchor]] might be used in inline text (<div> is block
markup by default).
