Apparently /var/cache is Linux-specific. I wouldn't be surprised to find out
that it was invented by the FHS guys.
So, it seems we have three options:
1) follow what the specs say and have cache files in /var/cache (in Linux) or
/var/tmp (everywhere else)
2) use the same for all systems and save cache in /var/tmp in all platforms
3) do nothing and leave as is in /tmp
We already have a lot of different path types in KDE (just do kde-config
- --types). Having one more for cache wouldn't hurt too much.
