We're having the exact same problem. Though we didn't (yet) put money on
the table because we're a very young startup not even making money yet.
:) But we're strongly considering it for the future. Currently I try to
help where I can in geos/PostGis but have not much time to really do
much. :(

To address this problem, or at least reduce it, we wrapped the geos
operations we need (intersection, difference, etc) and perform cascaded
heuristic simplifications when a TopologyException occurs (simplify,
buffer of "epsilon" around the geometry, etc).
