It would be awesome if private chat would automatically start when I receive an unencrypted message, and insodoing, anyone sending me something unencrypted would be told that they need the plugin.

Setting your OTR to "require private messaging" will do something
similar, but it will send the request when you *send* a message, not
when you receive one.
