Well, what every buildout guideline on plone.org seems to mention is:
* Stuff in parts/* can and will be zapped into oblivion by buildout.
* Stuff in var/* is safe.
I cannot actually find it on buildout's pypi page, but I've always
treated it as a rule of thumb. I could of course be something build into
several zope2-ish recipes.
