| As far as I know, it was introduced in GCC 4.2 revision 108489.
| 
| Also:
| 
| $ svn log svn://gcc.gnu.org/svn/gcc/branches/gcc-4_2-branch | grep -n
| -e "Walways.true"
| 63424:  * gcc.dg/20031012-1.c: Add -Walways-true option.
| 63978:  * doc/invoke.texi (Warning Options): Document -Walways-true being
| 64532:  * common.opt (Walways-true): New option.
| 
| while
| 
| $ svn log svn://gcc.gnu.org/svn/gcc/branches/gcc-4_1-branch | grep -n
| -e "Walways.true"
| 
| shows nothing.

I strongly encourage the removal brefore 4.2 gets out.
