The WP 1.0 tools use it ( and subpages).  The
results from the API are (supposed to be) cached in a local database on
toolserver with a 12 hour expiry, to lighten the load on the API. 

The things that are parsed are:

1) Templates such as [[en:Template:B-Class]], to get the formatting that has
been specified inside them. This formatting is used to make the toolserver
program give similar output to on-wiki tables. It would be silly to manually
keep the web tool code in sync with the templates. And the overall collection
of class templates is not predefined and can grow at the whim of a wikiproject. 

2) The page [[en:User:SelectionBot/HomePage]] is parsed to fill in the contents
of the . 

The goal of this was to prevent, as much as possible, hard-coding formatting
into the web program that could be or should be updatable by people other than
the tool's maintainer.  

If there is a caching failure in this tool, it will be somewhat apparent in the
WMF server logs, because the requests would be coming from the toolserver's web
server. My logs show 4367 invocations in the last 24 hours.
