it really depends on the application and what the data in question is.
if it's data that will only be used once ever, perhaps it's overkill to
be using /var/cache at all and /var/tmp would be better.  if it's data
that might be used a few times and regenerated if needed,
then /var/cache is definitely the right place for it.

in any case, if you use something outside of /var/tmp, i'd suggest
making the mtime parameter configurable:

# MAX_TMPFILE_LIFETIME can be overridden in this file
if [ -r /etc/default/roundcube ]; then
	. /etc/default/roundcube
find /var/cache/roundcube/temp -type f -mtime +$MAX_TMPFILE_LIFETIME ...
