 They are used by hypermail for threading if you use the incremental update mode and do not use gdbm, or if you use hypetombox.pl to recreate the mbox from the html files. But I've fixed both of those to handle the obfuscated ids.
 Probably some people have written other parsers which use the ids. I don't have an easy way of telling how widely they are used or whether it would be hard for users to detect and fix the problems associated with obfuscating the ids.
