Thanks for all the input everybody! Looks like there is a majority view
that logs, blobs and Data.fs data are better located in adequate
top-level directories. I share this opinion.

So, grokproject will switch to create the mentioned top-level
directories to store data etc. in future releases.

For the documentation issues mentioned by Tim: having a quick look on
grok.zope.org, I didn't find many documents mentioning the parts/data
directory explicitly, so updating docs should be manageable IMHO.

Have a nice day,
