Data.List and Control.Monad have no conflicting names at the moment.

On the other hand, you have a problem only when you use the conflicting
name in your code. Perhaps it wouldn't be so bad, but I tend to
use (concat . intersperse sep) a lot, and if I used join instead of that,
I would have to hide "join" from all my Control.Monad imports.

How about:
    sepBy (like in Parsec)
or in the spirit of concatMap:
but that's a bit long.

Best regards
