The GEOS WKT support suffers from the 2D/3D issue. I didn't see that as a big deal for the first go round. It should handle the multipart features though. It's up to you if you'd like to tackle any of that before RC3. I'm not going to do anything more to the GEOS support unless someone finds a true bug.

I see your already tracking 1613 down so we should definitely wait on that one.

There are two recent bugs:

I am wondering if we should push to fix them for 4.8 (in
which case they ought to be fixed before RC3) or just leave
them for 4.8.1.

The WKT issues relate to fairly esoteric geometry types (in
my mind), though they need to be fixed at some point.   The
"imagemap" bug seems like it could affect alot of other things
too if we are not ever using vsnprintf().  For instance handling
of long error messages.   To me this is worth delaying the
release (and RC3) for.
