Specifically, the ones I'd have in mind would be:

Yes, I end up importing those in most scripts currently.  Just "join" has worked fine, although I could imagine someone getting confused about it.
Our homebuilt pre-pathlib package has an 'abs_path' parameter in join, so that could easily eliminate the abspath function itself:

>>> joinpath('.', abs_path=True)
