    The bacteria thing may be of some limited use in certain situations, but that's not the purpose of it. In leaf-eating herbivores, it actually aids digestion, but we've lost the function. And I strongly suspect that over the course of human existence, more people have died from peritonitis than have been saved by bacterial repopulation from the appendix - in other words, if one were to assume that it was intentionally designed, the designer screwed up.
