No, it's not needed.  The best way of requiring quack after geiser would
be something like:

   (eval-after-load "geiser" '(require quack))

although if you use quack from elpa too, the loading order is going to
be whatever elpa uses (i'd have to check what that order is; with any
luck it'll be alphabetical and then we're done.)

I think geiser is stable enough to be followed via elpa: i take care of
releasing to marmalade every new release, and to release whenever
there'is anything new interesting enough or a critical fix.

If you want to follow the latest minute changes, having a local clone of
the git repo and loading geiser directly from there should work too (but
then i'd just remove the elpa package, to avoid conflicts).

Everyone can be taught to sculpt: Michelangelo would have had to be
taught not to. So it is with great programmers.
