I'm in a department which allows optional submission of gre scores. My reaction is pretty similar to that of Marcus.

I think for the case of a student intending to focus on a technical area of philosophy (logic, philosophy of physics, formal epistemology) where the undergraduate transcript is light on math, then a strong score on the quantitative section of the qre might be reassuring to admissions committees. But other than that, I doubt it would be worth the hassle of preparing for the test.
