That may well be.  But Vim is not Emacs.

I'm not resisting GNU coding style.  I am resisting scripts and/or other
configuration things that make my editor do something else than what I tell
it to do.  If I type enter in insert mode, the cursor should go to column
one in a newly opened line, not "helpfully" to e.g. four spaces in.  Because
I will bloody well type four spaces anyway.  Etc.  Not to mention the horrors
it will do in a machine description file.

This all should be opt-in.  As it already is.  If you can give some suggested
config for other users, that's marvellous, it will probably be helpful to
some.  Changing the config for everyone is quite the opposite of helpful.


p.s.  At least you're not forcing syntax hilighting on ;-)
