The XDG base directory specification proposes to use a directory where 
applications can then put their cache directories:


"$XDG_CACHE_HOME defines the base directory relative to which user specific 
non-essential data files should be stored. If $XDG_CACHE_HOME is either not 
set or empty, a default equal to $HOME/.cache should be used."
