I've just pushed a patch that adds a new customization variable,
geiser-mode-start-repl-p, that activates auto-run.  When set to t,
Geiser starts the REPL upon entering geiser-mode if there's no one
active.  However, the flag is off by default, because i think that
starting external processes without user intervention is better done
only if the user asks for it.

Thanks so much, that's brilliant.

There's just one problem: when the REPL starts up, a new window is opened. The buffer is then buried. This means that if Emacs starts up with a buffer that requires a REPL, it starts up with two windows instead of (normally) one. It's not a big deal, but it's a little offputting. Is it possible to make the REPL creation happen entirely "in the background" when it's caused non-interactively?
