It's for whatever you like to use it for that you don't mind losing. I
sometimes put packages there that I am going to install, sometimes
script temporary files, sometimes data files I want to look at, eg
chunks of log files. Some packages (eg Apache Tomcat) seem to use it
too. I've used it for script generated scripts too.
