[Grok-dev] extends-cache and log directories

Hi there,

At first sight, it looks like we have two new things to svn:ignore with 
the new grokproject layout: 'log' and 'extends-cache'.

But since I think either directory isn't actually automatically 
*created* by SVN, and thus building out or starting grok fails if you 
don't have these directories available, we'll have to check them in. But 
not their contents. That's annoying.

Could it be made so that these directories are automatically by buildout 
if they aren't around? That would allow me to ignore both of them, at 
least. But perhaps there's another solution instead:

I was wondering why extends-cache at least can't go into 'parts'. That 
way I can count on my existing 'svn:ignore' for 'parts'. That's assuming 
its contents should never be checked in.

And why did 'log' get moved out of 'var'? If it were in there, I'd be 
able to count on my existing svn:ignore for 'var'. So unless we have a 
good reason to put it in the top level again, can we put it there again?
