We should do that everywhere when a daemon absolutely needs a
directory/file to exist. We should not rely on it being present on the
file system in such critical cases.
pacman suffers from a similar problem: running pacman on an empty file
system will result in an error message indicating there is no local
database directory - you have to create it first manually. While this is
not critical, it is still annoying.
