By "300+ line file" you mean `iso8601.el'?  If so, I would indeed not
expect `compat.el' to duplicate all of that.  However, I wonder if
`compat.el' may be able to house some funs/vars needed to port
`iso8601.el' to older Emacsen?  I haven't had a close look at it, nor
at the time-related changes in Emacs 27, to know if this would be
doable in a reasonable way.  Perhaps Lars might.
