This is just a matter of emphasis. Clearly os.listdir is among the
batteries which are included.

If you're writing the sort of smallish script that moves files around,
it may be convenient to just put

"from os import *"
"from os.path import *"

at the top of the script

and maybe the resulting language will better fulfill your
expectations, at the expense of a greatly increased set of keywords to
keep track of.

That baffles me. If anything your complaint seems to me like it would
be the other way around.
