In Confluence 4, I can type [ and it lets me search for pages in my Confluence to link to, which is great. But how then do I link to headings on that page? So far, the only way I have found is to manually copy the entire URL and link to that. I was hoping the fancy search function could root out headings within a page too.

Each heading item has an id attribute that you can append to the url of the page to link directly to a heading.
However you don't need to use the page url, you can do it with the page name and wiki-markup, eg:
[My Page Name#MyHeadingId]
