If anyone needs to show the IDs of the attribute option values in the option overview in admin panel, here’s where to hack:

/app/design/adminhtml/default/default/template/catalog/product/attribute/options.phtml

l.77 ++ < th>< ?php echo $this->__('ID') ?>< /th>
l.90 ++ < td>{{id}}< /td>
l.115 ++ '< td>{{id}}<\/td>'+

ah, wordpress is destroying the code… sorry for that. Send me a mail if you need to know…
