I'd prefer it to be a property rather than a file as well.

I'd much prefer that ignore lists be checked into the repository. It
avoid obscure build problems when Joe Bloggs forgets he's got a
certain file ignored that the build now depends upon. Ideally a
checkout from the repository should work the same on any machine with
the appropriate external requirements met (build-tools, environment,
libraries if part of externals).

As for naming, how about introducing a convention of an "svn:client-"
prefix for properties that solely consumed by a compliant client... In
this case svn:client-ignore.
