I suspect these conditionals are very old and came from times when we supported some platforms that did not have these APIs.

Are they present on all CPython supported platforms today?

Windows is probably the only one left to verify.

BSD/Linux/Un*xes and modern macOS are POSIX.

macOS <= 9 (classic) has long since died.

yep! did my due diligence there, you can check my work on

all platforms have these functions since `posixmodule.c` is always compiled and the functions in question are not guarded by preprocessor directives in any way
