Suggestion:

(defvar try-recover-session nil
 "If set, emacs will call recover-session at startup if no file args are given.
recover-session will not be called in batch mode.")

The message
  Reading directory: no such file or directory, ...auto-save-list/.saves-*
at startup would get annoying after a while, so call recover-session
with an argument which means it should suppress that message.

Also, 'q' in the dired buffer should quit recover-session without
recovering any session, and the info message at the top of the buffer
should say so.
