disabling all forms of autoindentation in cygwin's vim

The cygwin version of vim, when installed, works well.  However, 
autoindentation is forced on the user by default.  I've mailed the vim 
mailing list and asked about this.  Vim's creator answered and said that 
autoindentation is disabled by default.

Why is autoindentation enabled by default in cygwin's vim?  Yes, I know 
you are mean, but could this be rectified? 

Having these in the vimrc file doesn't disable autoindentation completely:

set noautoindent
set nocindent
set nosmartindent
set indentexpr=
filetype indent off

Yes, these don't disable indentation completely because more config 
files are loaded after vimrc such as syntax files, files under 
ftplugins, etc.

Could I suggest (ping corinna...) that autoindentation be disabled by 
default so it conforms with the vim defaults as released by its 
creator?  How could I disable any and all sorts of indentation in 
cygwin's vim.

Attached is cygcheck.out
