I import only the functions I need from libraries that I don't
own myself to minimize that effect.
That said, feature creep is definitely a problem. I think
the GHC team will be the first to agree. But this particular
function really is a natural.
One point to consider - perhaps nowadays the type ought to
concatMapM :: (Monad m, Traversable t) => (a -> m (t b)) -> t a -> m (t b)
