It's not firing on the location object, though, and A elements also  
have a "hash" attribute. So the relationship is a little indirect.

Some suggestions:

onfragmentscroll (thought it might not scroll if nothing has that  
fragment ID)
onfragmentchanged
onfragmentload (not quite accurate but reminiscent of onload)
