FileCookieJar and it's subclasses don't accept Paths and DirEntrys.
Minimal code to reproduce:


import pathlib
from http.cookiejar import FileCookieJar

saved_cookies = pathlib.Path('my_cookies.txt')
jar = FileCookieJar(saved_cookies)


Results in: "ValueError: filename must be string-like".
Workaround is to convert Path explicitly or call load() which doesn't check for type, but it would be nice to see all APIs in standard library consistent.

I also did quick and dirty patch which silently converts filename argument using os.fspath(). This way it won't break any existing code relying on FileCookieJar.filename being string.
