How to disable auto-indentation on text mode interface?

The auto-indentation feature is meant to be friendly, but it actually seriously messes up with copypasting bits of Sage or Python code from text files. Is there some way it can be disabled (ideally: reversibly disabled) so I can copy pre-indented text?

I just learned something - it turns out you CAN do this very easily!

sage: def f(x):
....:         return x^2
sage: %autoindent
Automatic indentation is: OFF
sage: def f(x):
....:     return x^2

See the IPython documentation for more info, including some warnings. I'm not sure exactly what rc files Sage obeys for its own IPython.
