It's major-mode independent.  When `set paste' is on, vim turns off
automatic indentation and filling.  It is then possible to paste long
lines and lines of pre-formatted text without triggerring any sort of
`reformatting' of the text according to the current major mode.

Having said that, I've used `M-x text-mode / paste some text / M-x
old-mode' some times to do something similar.  I've also used `M-x
picture-mode / paste / C-c C-c' too.
