M1 processors have been in release since the fall and are now in use by 6 device models cutting a wide swath across Apple's product line (iPad, Mini, Air, Pro, and iMac). M1 and Rosetta aren't mentioned in the Pants Build docs. We'd held back in hopes, I think, that a clear and stable solution would emerge upstream. Given that still hasn't happened, I think it's time to add to the docs whatever useful guidance we can offer, even if imperfect. Thoughts? Any preferences on where such info should be fit into the docs?

@ancient-vegetable-10556 and @hundreds-father-404 seem to have developed the most expertise, such as it is, in this topic. I wonder if this might merit a blog post, where there's more latitude to mention things tried, dead ends that others can avoid, etc. Then the docs entry could be a brief "try ______", with a link to the post for the rest of the story.

I’ll talk with Eric on Monday to see if we agree on what things are interesting/relevant

Thank you to @hundreds-father-404 for blogging about M1 support https://blog.pantsbuild.org/how-we-added-apple-silicon-support-to-pants/, and Eric and @ancient-vegetable-10556 for adding this solution to the docs.
