I thought we were allowed to roll another release candidate if there was
a demonstrated problem (and whether it resets the soak period was
another argument).

In any case, it looks like someone already included much of the logic in
configure.in already:

was made possible by the following trivial change:

Index: configure.in
--- configure.in (revision 16707)
+++ configure.in (working copy)
@@ -227,7 +227,7 @@

  # Either a space-separated list of allowable Neon versions, or "any" to
  # mean allow anything.
-NEON_ALLOWED_LIST="0.24.7 0.25.0 0.25.1 0.25.2 0.25.3"
+NEON_ALLOWED_LIST="0.24.7 0.25.1 0.25.2 0.25.3"
  dnl You can skip the neon version check only if you know what you are

Along with a documentation change to INSTALL, that should be sufficient
