[New-bugs-announce] [issue43722] PEP 597: FileCookieJar uses locale encoding

New submission from Inada Naoki <songofacandy at gmail.com>:

During fixing EncodingWarning in stdlibs, I found FileCookieJar, LWPCookieJar, and MozillaCookieJar use locale encoding for cookie files.

I don't know much about cookie file format. If locale encoding is right encoding, we can just use `encoding="locale"` since Python 3.10.

Or cookie files should be encoded in UTF-8, or latin-1?
