Rename "archive" folder name to "cache"
Someone in the forums made that suggestion, for newcomers is not easy to figure it out that "archive" has temporal files.

There is a similar feature somewhere else (debian packaging stuff) about that.
The change from archive/ to cache/ is not a good idea because right now archive does not contain only cache, it contains data that is generated as temporary file download, etc.
The right way to do it (in my view) would be to create a "data/" directory and have, inside it, a "cache/" directory, the "courses/" directory, the "main/upload/users/" directory and all directories that enable uploads (the ones that need to be writeable at install, except the "main/inc/conf/" directory. "lang/" and "css/" should exist there as well but be treated as "complementary" directories.
The Debian packaging task is #5871. I'm rejecting this one in favour of the other one.
