yes, this the embl_id_* files are still necessary since they
are used for counting how many index partitions were build. This
is necessary, as Don wrote, to build extra indices (non ID indices).
This will go away with the next release (btw, most of the features that
i announced for the next release are implemented by now;-)) where
information
such as the number of index partitions will be stored in an extra file
...but
for the time being it is safer to keep the *_id_* files
