It's not a huge deal.  PostGIS 2.4.0 only relies on GEOS 3.7.0 for the ST_FrechetDistance function.  I'd probably be the only packager jumping to include it anyway.

It's not like it was when releasing GEOS 3.5.0 and all the cool new stuff coming in PostGIS 2.2 relied on 3.5.


Packagers can use it in PostGIS 2.4.1  if they need a stable release – the function just won't be enabled out of the gate is all and will throw an error "requires GEOS 3.7.0" is all.
