The proper way to place runtime-created, discardable/gegeneratable data in
/var. Look at apache's log file handling for an example.

Another problem you'll face is the fact that a normal user can't write to
/etc (and probably /var/something), and I wonder if $HOME is the right
place. Depends a bit on how frequently that file is/should be updated.
