I've used superscripts as footnote references a few times (e.g., ...close-vim-from-the-command-line ) .

Is it possible to link these so that they jump down to the appropriate place (such as the bottom/foot of the answer) when clicked on?

This is probably overkill, as answers are not usually so long that they aren't visually scan-able. But this is the only case so far in which I've missed wikipedia's markup features.

No, there is no way to do footnoting or anchoring within a post at the moment.

We have a post size limit of 30,000 chars which is a lot, but not so much that IMHO you'd really need such things. And most posts, even larger posts, are nowhere near 30k chars.
