[New-bugs-announce] [issue16378] venv.EnvBuilder docstring inconsistencies

New submission from Bradley Froehle:

Consider the docstring for venv.EnvBuilder::

    By default, the builder makes the system (global) site-packages dir
    available to the created environment.

    By default, the creation process uses symlinks wherever possible.

It seems to suggest that the `system_site_packages` and `symlink` parameters both default to True, even though the default values for each are False.

The docstring for venv.create is similarly misleading.
