Of course I can code such a function, and I agree with the second
sentence, but I think that obtaining absolutes path is a task so commonly
needed that adding a keyword to an existing function would give a plus to
the library without adding complexity (speaking of number of modules).

Usually when you use os.listdir do you end using os.path.join to obtain
absolutes path? I'm interested to know if the task is so common as I
think, or if I'm wrong.

Thank you,
