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?
