R. David Murray added the comment:
Our documentation describes what you get if you install Python using our distribution of python. If you do that, you (by default) get a pyvenv script, and it points to the version of python that you just (last) installed.
Distributions change this. We can't document what every distribution does.
That said, I think it would be a good idea to move the description of calling it via 'python -m venv' to be the *first* mention, and *then* describing pyvenv (and noting that it is installed by our installers but a vendor install may do something different, including omit it).
versions: -Python 3.3
