As the original author of the predecessor bug report (issue 15873) in 2012, I would suggest that there's too much bikeshedding here. I filed this bug because there was no usable ISO8601 date parser available.  PyPi contained four slightly different buggy ones, and three more versions were found later.  

I suggested following RFC3339, "Date and Time on the Internet: Timestamps", section 5.6, which specifies a clear subset of ISO8601.  Five years later, I suggest just going with that. Fancier variations belong in non-standard libraries.

Date parsing should not be platform-dependent.  Using an available C library was convenient, but not portable. 

Let's get this done.
