No, compat does not automatically add other dependencies.  If you need
some other core package that is also available from ELPA, you will need
to add the dependency to the "Package-Requires" list yourself.

But I have noticed that compat is missing `text-property-search-forward'
and `text-property-search-backward'.  If you are interested in using
compat, I've already implemented the code and could publish a release
with these functions added.

This is also useful since the new `setopt' macro can use this for
