Is /var/cache really such a bad option? I mean, the entire web content
is re-generated from templates & graphs are re-generated from the rrd
databases every 5 minutes. So even if someone did delete the directory,
it'll just be recreated up to 5 minutes later.

Users might not know a good answer such a question and will probably
just stick with the defaults, so suggesting /var/www/munin will just
keep the current non FHS complaint status quo.
