I agree the wording "is always available" is quite ambiguous. It's just that we use this phrase pretty much everywhere...

First paragraph of https://docs.python.org/3/library/sys.html
"It is always available."

https://docs.python.org/3/library/threading.html?highlight=threading#module-threading "This module used to be optional, it is now always available."

I wonder if it will be clearer if it says "is available across all platforms"?
