The less options the better, especially when no-one uses them. In this  
case, I think you are only the second to want to disable it (ignoring  
a recent guy on IRC who also wanted to, but I the conclusion was that  
it was actually the “; idents”-macro in the C bundle he wanted to get  
rid of).

I am curious to why you prefer not to have auto-indent, do you then  
manually insert the tabs TextMate would otherwise insert, and if so,  
would you also want to disable the “first tab on a line inserts enough  
tabs to get to the current indent level”?
