   The first change introduces an user option to control whether the
   Scheme process buffer should be automatically displayed upon
   evaluation of Scheme code by the user, thus making the results of the
   evaluation visible.  The default value of this option is `nil', so
   that the current behavior is preserved.

have you considered using the variables and hooks associated w/
comint.el to effect this behavior?  apropos on comint.*function shows:

  Variable: Functions to call before input is sent to the process.
  Plist: variable-documentation permanent-local

among other things.  (another variable in cmuscheme.el is harmless, but
IMHO it is more elegant to make use of existing facilities.)

   The second set of changes offers the user to start a Scheme
   interpreter if she tries to evaluates Scheme code without having
   started an interpreter before.  Right now Emacs just raises an error
   in this case.

and errors are not user-friendly?!  (just kidding.)  i think this is a
good feature to add.
