      Who uses Vim with not even a vimrc? The vimrc is a custom script of course.

      Well, I suppose that I could use "vim -u
      /usr/local/vim/vim73e/vimrc_example.vim -c 'filetype indent off' "
      (since the example vimrc is distributed with Vim) or would these
      command-line options be cheating already? And what about editing UTF-8
      on Windows? This "no custom scripts" rule would make it impossible,
      since most Windows "country settings" are for non-Unicode locales.
