Where should binaries be compiled and run?

Hi,
I successfully invoke g++ and build an executable from setup.py, and then run it from init.py.
Sources and makefile are in my_plugin/data/c_src, and the executable is built in the same directory.
Installs, uninstalls and works fine.

I am not sure for the directory. The documentation says that data directory is for things needed by the plugin, other than templates, style sheets, and java files. Is data the right directory for an executable (!), or should it go elsewhere ? (for example the base directory, with init.py)

The data folder makes sense to me. That's how octolapse and it's parser works I think.

I couldn't find the GCode parser executable, and reading the compiler/linker options didn't help.
for my thing :
sources + makefile : data/c_src
executable in a "bin" folder along with data, static and templates does work. At worst, it uninstalls properly ! This is the most important.
