intersection of two free submodules

I have two modules found as follows

 F=GF(2);R.<x,y,z> = PolynomialRing(F)
 f1 = 1+z;g1=1+y;h1=0;
 I1 = Ideal([f1,g1,h1])
 M1 = I1.syzygy_module(); M1

[ 0 0 1]

[y + 1 z + 1 0]

 F=GF(2);R.<x,y,z> = PolynomialRing(F)
 f2 = 0;g2=1+y;h2=1+x;
 I2 = Ideal([f2,g2,h2])
 M2 = I2.syzygy_module(); M2

[ 1 0 0]

[ 0 x + 1 y + 1]

Is it possible to find the intersection of two such submodules $M_1$ and $M_2$ in sage? Another possibility would be to find the syzygy of the module generated by vectors (f1,g1,h1) and (f2,g2,h2).

SageMath uses Singular for this, and Singular can compute intersections of modules over polynomial rings.

I don't think this functionality has been exposed to SageMath, but we can easily do that ourselves:

def intersection(M1,M2):
    return singular.intersect(M1.transpose(),M2.transpose()).sage().transpose()

Then we can do:

sage: M3 = intersection(M1,M2); M3
[x*y + x + y + 1 x*z + x + z + 1 y*z + y + z + 1]
sage: M3[0]
(x*y + x + y + 1, x*z + x + z + 1, y*z + y + z + 1)
sage: [f.factor() for f in M3[0]]
[(y + 1) * (x + 1), (z + 1) * (x + 1), (z + 1) * (y + 1)]

Indeed, this single generator lies in the intersection:

sage: sum(a*b for (a,b) in zip(M3[0], I1.gens()))
0
sage: sum(a*b for (a,b) in zip(M3[0], I2.gens()))
0
