Currently, geiser-racket is unmantained (i'm saying this as its main
author): i don't use racket and my feeling is that the racket community
moved to racket-mode a long time ago, so i actually consider
geiser-racket deprecated in favour of the latter.  So babel support is,
i am afraid, not in any radar i know of :) I guess one would need, to
begin with, a new maintainer for geiser-racket: i'm more than willing to
help anyone that steps up and pass the batton (racket is second only to
guile in its support for geiser, even today, so it's a bit sad it's

I agree, although i am sure something could be done in the context of
racket-mode, it's a very good package.  Perhaps it'll be easier to find
racket users interested in helping there than in reviving geiser-racket.

If languages had true garbage collection, most programs would
delete themselves upon execution.
