The reason for choosing /var/tmp, was that i wanted it to be a directory
that existed in all variations of UNIX/Linux/BSD.

I actually made a small patch that allows the user to configure where
they want the whole cache, not just per virtualhost.

I don't see any problem in moving it to /var/cache, combined with the
ability to let the user choose where he wants the cache, if not in
/var/cache. I wanted it in /space/cache and didn't want to change the
code or create a symlink, but never got around to submitting the patch
to the list.
