I've been using this to get correct indenting with vim
in qemu for a while, but it's a bit easier if we
put the settings in the central place.
Note that
1. you still need to enable 'exrc' and 'secure'
   options in your vimrc for these settings to take effect.
2. you can create a .vimrc file if 'exrc' is on but there's
   need to bypass this configuration.

So two -1 and one +1, given +1 seems to be the only one from a vim user
I'm inclined to go ahead with this one as others aren't likely to be
negatively affected...

Doesn't this make VIM to read commands from all files edited, not just
files of QEMU? Aren't there security implications from this
recommendation?

That is why you need to set "secure" option.
Another way is to manually source this file,
I will add this explanation.
