 3.11 is the default python version for MacPorts now, so if a port uses
 python for something, that's the version it should be using. The fact that
 you don't like having the latest python version installed doesn't seem
 like a very compelling reason to add variants, but I'll leave the decision
 in the hands of the maintainers of these ports.
