Abstract Inner Class

I saw a post by Paul Wheaton about three years ago which shows a structure for creating an abstract inner class.
Paul's Example
Why would i ever want to use an abstract "inner" class as opposed to just a regular abstract class?
Could someone give a practical example of why one would choose to do this?
If I do use an abstract inner class with abstract methods, and then I later choose to subclass my outer class, is the abstract inner class inherited? If so, I wouldn't have to re-implement those abstract inner class abstract methods, would I?
