Shared data should go in zope/var, or a subdirectory of that.
Zope/lib should be considered read-only by running products unless
explicitly changed by the user.  As you have correctly pointed out,
lots of machines share Zope installations for multiple servers.

A standard interface for Python code to get a private subdirectory of
var might well be useful.
