I agree with Vadim... Most of the times when I check out projects  
internally here, the "bin" directory is where all my scripts live  
(kinda like ./bin/, blablabla - it's Unix standard).

I personally started using ".eclipse" because it's normally hidden  
from "ls", like ".svn" is and describes exactly what's that for.
