Whenever bzr tries to access it (i.e. running bzr ignore, bzr
status, ...).

Indeed, it might be better to check its presence at each startup. The
problem being "I know I want to add patterns X and Y to my ignore
list, but this file doesn't exist yet". If the user creates the file,
then it won't get the default pattern afterwards. But that's an
unusual situation.
