Program "crosspost" useful?

What is the use of backends/crosspost?
It seems to have been broken since 1997 (change of storage API).

**  Parse input to add links for cross posted articles.  Input format is one
**  line per article.  Dots '.' are changed to '/'.  Commas ',' or blanks
**  ' ' separate entries.  Typically this is via a channel feed from innd
**  though an edit of the history file can also be used for recovery
**  purposes.  Sample newsfeeds entry:
**      # Create the links for cross posted articles
**      crosspost:*:Tc,Ap,WR:/usr/local/newsbin/crosspost
**  WARNING: This no longer works with the current INN; don't use it
**  currently.  It still exists in the source tree in case someone will
**  want to clean it up and make it useable again.

What would INN have that program now for?  What is the need?
