You know, I saw this when I was looking at cnn.com, but Paul Bergner just forwarded it to an herb list and mentioned that he believes the appendix has a role in immune surveillance. His words: "it is dense with lymphatics, and it takes a sample of the digestive contents entering the colon, and generates systemic immunity to whatever is in the mix, as it prepares to process it in the colon."
