Do we have a plan to release python 3.10 binaries distributions?

It is not being currently worked on, but should not be super hard to pull off. It's mostly wrangling CI a little bit I think that the bigger issue is whether we keep supporting 3.7 too, meaning we release 4 versions. We are already in the top 20 offenders for how much PyPI storage we use because our wheels are big. Releasing 4 versions per macOS and Linux would make us even worse. It would also make our CI slower. I am personally in favor of swapping out 3.7 for 3.10. At this point, it seems like most environments have access to at least 3.8 and 3.9. What do you think?
The better answer is https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/issues/7369. With that, we can release a single binary. But in the meantime, we may want to switch 3.7 with 3.10

I tend to think that energy we have should be spent on https://github.com/pantsbuild/pants/issues/7369 doing python 3.10 and up is a waste of time in the long run. just my 2c.
